Licensing & Agreements

In today’s world, innovative enterprises are often collaborative, working closely with suppliers and customers to create the best possible products and services. Such collaboration can result in a complicated division of intellectual property rights, a division which sometimes prevents the full exploitation of the resulting goods and technologies.

At Pauly DeVries Smith and Deffner we proactively assist our clients in navigating the intellectual property implications of third party relationships. We help our clients understand the potential rights that are at stake and we assist in developing standard operating procedures that guide them and their employees in a savvy approach to collaboration.

We also assist in the strategy, negotiation and execution of joint development agreements, commercialization agreements, confidential disclosure agreements, and the licensing of intellectual property rights.
