Our team has extensive experience representing clients in a variety of intellectual property transactions such as licensing agreements, co-branding agreements, distribution contracts, joint ventures, and sales and purchases of intellectual property portfolios. Our IP clients are also active across a diverse range of industries such as advertising, public relations, product placement and promotions, beauty, fashion, retail, art and photography, publishing, music, and technology.
In addition, we also assist clients in identifying intellectual property rights belonging to competitors that have the potential to impede or totally disrupt our clients’ businesses. In such circumstances, we often represent our clients in transactions to obtain licenses (or engage in cross-licensing) of intellectual property rights belonging to others so as to proactively minimize these risks. We frequently assist clients in evaluating the value of intellectual property rights during the due diligence phase of mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcy reorganizations, and other corporate transactions.
Our IP team also possesses the knowledge, experience, and resources to litigate a wide variety of copyright, patent, and trade dress claims. Whether pursuing infringement claims or defending against them, our attorneys are here to guide clients through every step of the process.
