Commercial/IP agreements

Our specialist commercial team have the experience and commercial nous to help not only to anticipate and protect you against risks, but also to negotiate the best deal, and to create and implement a strategy for doing so, time after time. We work across all industries, from Pharma and Healthcare, to Software, Electronics, Automotive, Cleantech, Retail, Fashion, and beyond.

Owning an intellectual property right can, and should be, a licence to increase your profits. We will help you ensure that your business is using IP rights to maximise revenue generation by:

  • Devising checklists and heads of terms with you to facilitate simple and profitable deals
  • Working with you to draft and negotiate deals to secure the revenue stream you deserve
  • Working with you to devise strategies for the sale or licensing of your intellectual property rights
  • Drafting and negotiating all IP agreements, including R&D agreements, material transfer agreements, manufacturing agreements, clinical trial agreements. Our lawyers understand the technology and have the experience to anticipate what might happen and what IP may be created and then establish clear lines of ownership and exploitation
  • Advising on standard terms (sale and purchase), distribution and agency agreements, supply and services agreements, sub-contracts and commercial joint venture agreements
