What We Do

Intellectual Property Transactions

Site Tools

The most valuable corporate assets are increasingly intangible, making it even more critical to identify and solve intellectual property-related issues in corporate transactions.  Our Intellectual Property Transactions group counsels clients on the issues that surface in a range of transactions, from acquisitions and divestitures of intellectual property and technology assets to joint ventures and research and development agreements.

We represent multinational companies in cross-border transactions and financial offerings in multiple jurisdictions.  Our geographic footprint enables us to meet the demands of our multinational clients and to provide sophisticated and up-to-the-minute advice on global intellectual property law developments. 

For example:

Lead counsel to Intellectual Ventures and a consortium of 12 of the largest technology companies in the world in connection with the acquisition and licensing of Eastman Kodak Company’s digital imaging patent portfolio.

“As a member of the Intellectual Property Transactions group, I get to work on the intellectual property aspects of our firm’s top-tier global mergers and acquisitions, capital markets and finance transactions, while also benefiting from being part of a small practice group and making strong connections with colleagues and clients.”
