Intellectual property continues to grow in importance worldwide, with geographic barriers to commerce dissolving as technology and communication systems evolve. Increasingly, intellectual property has become one of the most valuable and durable assets a company may possess. Recognizing and exploiting the value of such assets can mean the difference between surviving and thriving.

We have assisted clients in a range of industries with leveraging the value of their intellectual assets and assessing and valuing intellectual property obsolescence risks. Our attorneys are experienced in assisting clients with licensing, joint ventures, recapitalization, mergers and acquisitions, and technology transfer agreements. We have counseled on pre- and post-transaction issues including division of customers and territories, and non-compete agreements.

We work collaboratively with our clients to understand and support their business goals. Once we have identified the value-drivers for our client, we will help them assess whether the intellectual property position will support or detract from those drivers and assist our client in refining their deal strategy.
