Our firm can assist you with IP-related negotiations with third parties so that you can best defend your interests.

For example, a third party may object to your use of a trademark on the basis of alledged IP rights. Or a search of prior rights may reveal a third-party trademark that may potentially be a barrier to your intended use of a trade name: we will help you with any negotiations with the third party for the purposes of reaching an amicable settlement

You are seeking to exploit a technology covered a patent owned by a third party: we will assist you in negotiating with that third party for a potential licence or purchase of the patented technology.

More generally, we will assist in negotiations relating to intellectual-property contracts, and in the context of pre-litigation and litigation issues in this field.
