As part of our Patents practice, we provide patent transactions & licensing services.

Patent transactions and patent licenses can be a way for patent holders to generate value in connection with a patent portfolio. Obtaining patent licensing can also be a mechanism to lawfully practice an invention covered by another’s patent. Our patent lawyers draft patent licenses as well as other patent transactional agreements. Additionally, we offer patent transactional and patent licensing experience, with in-depth understanding of patent law, contract law, and technology.
