Intellectual Property Licensing and Agreements

Agreements affecting intellectual property assets are critical to the underlying value of those assets. Great intellectual property can be diminished through agreements of poor quality. Likewise, the relative value of any intellectual property can be enhanced through thoughtful and effective agreements. Fish & Richardson’s licensing practitioners routinely handle more than 100 different types of intellectual property licensing and technology agreements for organizations ranging from start-ups, to technology transfer offices, to multinational corporations.

“The consolidated licensing taskforce [of Fish & Richardson] … is one of the best in the country.” – IAM Patent 1000, 2015

Our licensing professionals provide world-class strategic assistance with licensing and technology agreements via a unique combination of skill sets: a deep understanding of the underlying technology, significant business acumen, and a thorough understanding of the applicable legal principles. Attorneys within our licensing practice are licensed patent attorneys and have previously served as in-house counsel or have owned their own businesses. The combination of these legal and practical skill sets allows our licensing professionals to be a valued part of your efforts to protect and commercialize your intellectual property.
