We negotiate and draft intellectual property contracts -
patent contracts, trademark
contracts, trade secret contracts, e-commerce and
internet contracts, and more. We write contracts that
close the link between intellectual property, and value.
Our attorneys counsel clients in connection with
complex business transactions, the formation of
long-term relationships, and the licensing, purchase and
sale of technology. We provide intellectual property
opinions for public offerings and securities filings. We
review and draft franchise agreements, publishing
contracts, royalty agreements, and employment contracts
relating to protection of inventions, trade secrets, and
other intellectual property. We review our clients'
business practices, and recommend contracts that will
help them achieve their business objectives. For
example, if a client relies on custom software, we
verify they have the rights they thought they were
buying and prepare contracts that remedy the deficits we
find. If they have a website, we create contracts that
enhance protection against competitive misuse.
We know our client's industries, and apply practical
business judgment to assist them in identifying their
needs and achieving their goals, maximizing the return
on their investment.
