A patent, trademark, or copyright owner may allow a third party to use his or her intellectual property in exchange for payment. License agreements govern the terms of such arrangements. Expert legal counsel is vital in the licensing process, since the agreement protects the rights of the licensor and defines the obligations of the licensee. Intellectual property licenses involve legal, technical, business, and often political considerations; they also vary widely from one field to another. License planning and negotiation therefore require close, continuous cooperation and consultation between the client and the licensing attorney to secure the best result for the client.
The attorneys at Overhauser Law Offices negotiate millions of dollars worth of license agreements annually, and are experts in both international and domestic arrangements. To schedule a consultation about your licensing needs, please contact us.
