Schmeiser, Olsen & Watts understands that harvesting the full commercial value of intellectual property requires careful and creative strategic management. Licensing an invention or transferring proprietary technology is often the most commercially viable option available. When faced with this situation, it is important to enter into license agreements fully aware of all commitments, rights, and obligations. It is also advisable to draft licensing contracts that encourage cooperation rather than controversy. When engaged by clients involved in a license agreement or technology transfer, our attorneys will, in addition to draft agreements and negotiate settlements, act as a strategic business partner by advising clients on potential problems and conducting due diligence investigations throughout the process.
Our goal is to help our clients maximize the value they obtain through their license agreements and technology transfers.
