Our team of professionals have significant experience in a variety of IP agreement matters, patent assignments, license agreements, and related matters. This experience comes from years of in-house experience, or working closely with the private equity and venture capital community in investments, acquisitions, and divestitures.
As changes occur among businesses involved in technological research and development, questions pertaining to the ownership of intellectual property inevitably arise. The IP chain of title must be properly documented to secure investments, to provide representations and warranties as to IP ownership, and to be able to enforce IP assets.
A patent assignment or other IP agreement must be carefully drafted with special considerations. NK Patent Law can help you structure conveyance of rights to your intellectual property or help you as a licensee reduce royalty obligations under IP agreements, ensuring questions of ownership do not obstruct transfer of IP rights during a merger or acquisition, and that future questions do not cloud chain of title going forward.
