In today’s business world, intellectual property rights are increasingly the most important assets held by a company. We advise clients in a variety of contexts to acquire the IP they need to operate their businesses, and to preserve and maximize the value of the IP they already own.
We bring a deep understanding of our clients’ operations to provide advice and counseling in connection with the licensing of the software and hardware they need to run their businesses. We assist our clients, including purchasers, software vendors, and IT service providers — as both IP licensors and licensees — with negotiations and deal structuring, and in connection with business acquisitions, financings, joint ventures, and strategic alliances involving IP.
And, as an increasing number of enterprises move their IT to hosted, outsourced and other “cloud” environments, we regularly structure the complex service agreements with vendors to implement those arrangements.
