Licensing and Acquistions
We provide our clients with unique counsel and advice regarding a broad range of technology and proprietary “know-how” transfers, licenses and acquisitions, including copyrights, software licensing agreements, biotechnology licensing agreements and other sophisticated agreements to acquire or sell proprietary technology. We help our clients determine what is the best and most efficient way for them to protect their proprietary information and trade-secrets, and assist them in preparing non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements to help them seek new business opportunities and funding partners.
