The most conventional model for commercialising intellectual property is licensing or cross-licensing. We have experience with all of the critical issues, including:



  • Appropriate licensed fields, performance obligations, bases for calculating royalties, industry-typical and product specific royalty rates;
  • Transfer pricing;
  • Provisions addressing compounding royalties (anti-stacking);
  • Appropriate alternative dispute resolution mechanisms; and
  • Steps to mitigate against the insolvency of the licensor.
