Beyond protecting and monetizing intellectual property, licensing and transactions involve individual personalities, company cultures and MO’s in dealings, relationships between parties, and multi-disciplinary teams. In Vivo Patent Law navigates all aspects of negotiations to achieve clients’ business goals while being a sharp advocate in the transaction to maximize value and minimize risk.
Services include structuring, negotiating, drafting, and closing on R&D agreements; joint development agreements; in-licensing and out-licensing agreements involving patents and know-how; license option agreements; technology service agreements; confidential disclosure agreements or non-disclosure agreements; material transfer agreements; consultation agreements covering ownership of IP; and assignments.
We also help re-negotiate agreements for more favorable terms. This often is a necessity for start-ups that have excessive license fees that increase burn rate and inhibit any growth.
