Intellectual property in a business context is an apex concern for most entrepreneurs and established commercial principals, for obvious reasons.
For starters, and as we note on our business law website at the metro Washington, D.C., law firm of David, Brody & Dondershine, "Developing and perfecting new technology takes an incredible amount of time and resources."
And then, of course, there is that practical application: IP flatly does not relate to trivial concerns. Rather, and without exception, intellectual property is the engine that drives company growth and profit. If an enterprise possesses top-tier technology processes and know-how, it unquestionably commands an enviable status vis a vis business rivals.
There is a reciprocal flip side to that, too, namely this: A competitive edge can be gained by any company that secures high-quality IP from another entity on attractive licensing terms.
We stress on our site that it is equally important for both technology licensors and licensees "to have a sound licensing strategy in place that protects business interests."
We help with that.
In fact, IP-licensing representation and advocacy comprises a core practice area for our proven commercial legal team, which assists diverse clientele ranging from individuals to major American and foreign companies.
Seasoned IP attorneys lend support to business players in myriad ways. Legal counsel can negotiate new agreements for parties on either side of a licensing agreement, as well as review and draft relevant contracts and related documentation. And if things turn sour in a material way for a licensor or licensee, a practiced and aggressive legal team can mitigate risk and promote a client's best interests through forcible litigation in court.
We welcome contacts to our firm to discuss IP-related and other business challenges and opportunities.
