When a client is considering a new initiative, they often ask us to assist with an assessment of the intellectual property that they own or use as well as the IP landscape.
We assist clients to determine the scope of instruct freedom to operate analyses to determine whether the business is free to pursue a particular opportunity without infringing third party registered IP rights.
We undertake IP audits of intellectual property owned by or licensed to a business in order to verify whether the business is free to pursue a particular opportunity or initiative.
We have experience analysing registered and unregistered IP portfolios in connection with joint ventures, licences, M&A and financing transactions. We also draft the full range of transactional and transitional agreements. Finally, we have experience in attending to the recordal or assignments, licences and security interests.
