Licensing & Transactions

Securing and commercialization of intellectual property rights requires dealings with others, be it a collaborator, business partner, employee, independent contractor, supplier, investor, buyer, or seller. Well-drafted agreements protect intellectual property assets and ensure a successful business relationship. A clear agreement, where the parties know their rights and obligations, can also avoid costly litigation.

Drafting and negotiating agreements affecting intellectual property requires not only an understanding of the IP assets, but also the client's business goals. Bereskin & Parr LLP's professionals bring to the handling of licensing and transaction matters a wide variety of technical backgrounds and knowledge in fields such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, chemistry, computer science, electronics, and entertainment and new media. Members of our Licensing & Transactions group also have a deep understanding of national and foreign intellectual property protection, and experience in drafting and negotiating complex IP agreements which allows us to structure the deal that best protects our clients' business interests worldwide.

Our licensing and transaction clients include individual inventors, start-up companies, major national and multinational concerns, universities, hospitals, and research institutions.
