Licensing & IP Transactions
YOU ME advises clients on IP issues that arise in the commercial context of their businesses. Our attorneys secure IP rights from inventors and developers, optimize IP value through licensing agreements, create synergies through joint venture arrangements, and evaluate and negotiate mergers and acquisitions involving technology assets, which often involve cross-border issues and cooperation with associates from the US, Europe and Asia. As due diligence is essential to such work, our attorneys always carefully assess patent, trademark and copyright portfolios, review license and technology service agreements, confirm IP ownership, assess the adequacy of IP disclosures, and identify key IP issues unique to industry sectors and ways in which to resolve them to conform with client commercial needs.
