Licensing, IP Transactions and E‑Commerce
Our team of attorneys specialize in advising clients regarding the protection, transfer and exploitation of intellectual properties (“IP”) such as trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and patents. We help clients to attain their business goals through strategies for protection and use of client IP, as well as the acquisition of necessary IP rights from third parties. We represent clients in many industries with the negotiation and preparation of confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements, employment and consulting contracts, research and development agreements, manufacturing and distribution agreements, as well as assignments and license agreements.
We advise businesses on the e-commerce practices and policies required to establish and operate commercial web sites. Our attorneys assist clients in the acquisition of the domain names and related trademark or service mark rights needed for web sites, and prepare online policies, “click-through” contracts, co-branding agreements, content licensing, hosting, and other agreements for electronic rights management. We advise clients on strategies to protect their valued IP and proprietary rights in an electronic environment.
