Licensing of Patents, Trademarks, and Copyrights
Companies and individuals seeking to acquire intellectual property rights – either through the application process or purchase from another – turn to Rivkin Radler LLP. We have significant experience advising clients with respect to the licensing of intellectual property rights in virtually every industry. Whether representing the licensee or the licensor, we carefully negotiate and draft comprehensive business agreements for the licensing of patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets on behalf of our clients.
Our intellectual property lawyers also provide sound legal counselling on matters relating to:
- Due diligence involving the purchase and valuation of intellectual property assets in connection with a business purchase.
- Right-to-use and clearance opinions that analyze, among other things, whether the manufacture, use or sale of a product infringes on an existing patent, copyright, or trademark.
- The validity of an existing patent, copyright, or trademark.
Our attorneys understand how critical it is for a business to preserve and protect its intellectual property rights, and we always factor that into the analysis when helping a business to control the use of those rights, or leverage them for a profit.
