Licensing Law

License agreements play a considerable role in the various business areas of a company. They often form the core of critical projects, whether in research and development cooperations or issues involving copyright, IT, trademark and patent law and numerous other disciplines. Moreover, it is becoming increasingly important to safeguard know-how through IP licensing and other means to protect both proprietary intellectual property and the option to utilize the know-how or intellectual property rights of third parties.

We assist our clients in preparing, reviewing, optimizing and negotiating license agreements or other contracts involving intellectual property licensing, such as cooperation agreements, intellectual property purchase agreements and research and development agreements.

Moreover, we assess the legal feasibility of license models or other commercializations of our clients’ intellectual property.

We have especially strong experience in international licensing projects.

In case of license infringements, we support our clients in both court and arbitration proceedings.
