Commercializing IP
News + Views + Events

Once you’ve solved the challenges of invention and development, the next step may lead you to commercialize and monetize your intellectual property assets. This could be through a license or sale, an investment, a joint venture, product integration, collaboration, or a hybrid combination of agreements. 

At this critical stage, you need experienced advisors who can help you navigate the complexities of these negotiations, including licensing terms, royalty clauses, intellectual property due diligence, and IP indemnities.

Commercialization of your IP must be informed by the overall IP strategy for your organization. You may be a technology start-up with a game-changing innovation, or you may be developing incremental improvements to mature products in an established marketplace, or maybe you are a public company with an existing technology portfolio.
