IP Transactions

Our intellectual property (IP) lawyers represent owners, licensees and acquiring parties in all types of IP transactions. This includes consensual business transactions as well as the settlement of contested matters. We assist IP owners with portfolio management as well, and we work with companies throughout the United States and around the world to protect and capitalize upon their IP assets and commercial opportunities.

In today’s world, IP transactions are becoming increasingly complex. At Greenblum & Bernstein, P.L.C., we have the experience and insights our clients need to make informed and strategic decisions with respect to all aspects of IP management and monetization. We routinely handle transactions involving cutting-edge technologies and global brands, and we bring the same capabilities to representing small companies that are seeking to license their intellectual property and grow their IP portfolios.

Portfolio Management

Patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets all need to be managed. Owners need to ensure that they meet all applicable renewal and other filing requirements, and they must monitor to ensure that their exclusive rights are not being infringed. Effective IP portfolio management can also help to drive value by facilitating the identification of licensing and other market opportunities, and it can allow companies to easily determine when additional registrations, licenses or acquisitions may be required.

We provide IP portfolio management services for companies of all sizes, and we manage and monitor our clients’ IP assets both in the U.S. and abroad. Our lawyers utilize leading technologies to help our clients protect and maximize the value of their IP, and we provide recommendations for registering new IP assets and pursuing enforcement action as and when appropriate. We can tell you where opportunities and vulnerabilities exist, and we can shoulder the burden of making sure your company’s valuable IP assets are secure.

Client Counseling, Licensing & Technology Transfer

For companies of all sizes, transactions involving company-owned and third-party IP assets can serve a broad range of purposes. We help companies strategically license and acquire patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets—both in targeted commercial transactions and in settlement negotiations following lawsuits and other contested proceedings.

Our attorneys are experienced in drafting and negotiating contracts for all types of IP transactions. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • License agreements
  • Joint venture agreements
  • Technology transfer agreements
  • Partnership agreements
  • Settlement agreements
  • Common interest agreements
  • Joint defense agreements
  • Software development agreements

When pursuing these and other transactions, it is critical to have a comprehensive understanding of both parties’ intent as well as the specific rights that are on the table. With our attorneys’ experience in an extraordinarily broad range of IP transactions, we are able to help our clients efficiently make smart decisions and move forward with confidence.
