Beyond procuring protection for our clients’ innovations, trademarks, and creative works, Brooks Kushman offers a variety of services to help clients enhance the value of their intellectual property and better manage their rights.

Our attorneys work alongside in-house legal and business teams to leverage patents, trade secrets, or portions of an IP portfolio that can often be used to generate new revenue, create new markets, or stone-wall the competition. We have advised companies of all sizes on preparing licenses, partnering transactions, and other strategic alliances that can provide access to resources that might otherwise remain unavailable. Our attorneys have structured and negotiated a wide variety of alliances that have resulted in meaningful new opportunities for our clients.

At Brooks Kushman, we believe that licensing decisions should be made within the context of a consistent strategy designed to maximize the value of the resources devoted to intellectual property development. We frequently provide draft agreements, negotiations, and strategic counsel to help clients leverage their own technologies. We have also helped clients structure efficient and effective agreements to obtain rights in new technologies from outside sources.

Technology transfers and other grants of intellectual property rights can be extraordinarily complex, requiring a body of expertise ranging from due diligence investigations to the drafting of the transfer agreements. At Brooks Kushman, we know how to structure technology transfers in a manner that ensures that our clients receive all of the contemplated benefits, with all reasonable limitations upon future liabilities. We bring significant knowledge of the technology at issue, expertise in IP law, and an understanding of each client’s business to each transaction.

Our team of transaction and licensing attorneys regularly advise clients on:

  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Technology transfer agreements
  • Patent license agreements
  • Joint marketing agreements
  • Trademark License Agreement
  • Trade secret agreements

Our team of transaction attorneys brings a level of business and technical experience that is unmatched in today’s marketplace. We work alongside our clients at every stage of the process—as they work with suppliers, co-developers, and customers—protecting their rights with our thorough knowledge of the law, the technology, and the business.
