Defining IP ownership and exploitation rights

Our skills and expertise are invaluable when preparing or reviewing agreements and contracts relating to all aspects of intellectual property. Getting these agreements correct can be critical to the ongoing success of a company, particularly in the event of future disputes. In addition, correct and complete ownership paper-trails can be essential to the securing of investment funding, asset sale or successful exit plans.


  • When our clients buy or sell intellectual property rights we facilitate negotiations, prepare assignment documents and subsequently record the transfer of ownership at the relevant patent offices throughout the world.
  • Our expertise extends to licensing and franchise agreements, IP ownership clauses in employment contracts and IP contracts between holding and operating companies
  • We make sure our clients are aware of the implications of correctly defining IP ownership prior to entering into joint collaboration or development projects and can prepare appropriate contracts to protect their rights.
