Commercial Intellectual Property

We advise clients on the full range of commercial contracts relating to the exploitation of IP rights.

We frequently advise on cross-border collaborations, joint ventures and strategic licensing deals and have experience in working for, and negotiating against, counterparties throughout Europe, the United States and Asia. The particular commercial advice we can provide to clients includes the following areas:

  • Licensing, joint venture and collaboration documentation
  • Sale and other forms of disposal of IP rights including warranty protection
  • Distribution, agency, contract manufacture, supply, sponsorship and other commercial agreements
  • IP-backed asset financing and taking security interests over IP assets, including royalty monetisation agreements
  • IP due diligence and verification, including related agreements
  • Antitrust risks in licensing, joint venture and non-compete arrangements, including those related to the settlement of patent disputes
  • Procedures and negotiations of arrangements for parties seeking to exit, or in the event of insolvency or bankruptcy of one party
  • Standard form agreements – we can provide seminars to business people on how to use standard forms, and issues to watch out for
