Gesmer Updegrove recognizes that technology licensing is crucial to a successful business in the high tech market, and it is a key focus of our practice.
Like snowflakes, specific technology needs and licensing arrangements are different in each instance. Based on your individual industry, you will need a high level of expertise when it comes to meeting your very specific circumstances.
Intellectual Property is one of the most critical assets of a technology company, so we ensure that your assets are protected when they are licensed to others.
We advise, assist and structure arrangements for businesses to obtain licenses to the technology of others for operational purposes, including cross-licensing arrangements, re-licensing, sublicensing, or obtaining rights to incorporate licensed work into your own products.
We have extensive experience in complex licensing agreements involving patents, trademarks, and copyrights, as well as mergers, acquisitions and joint venture agreements. We have written license agreements with universities, government agencies and other large institutions.
