Stites & Harbison’s Intellectual Property and Technology attorneys represent clients in all types of licensing and technology transfer agreements. We have helped private and public organizations commercialize technology through licensing in, licensing out, and cross-licensing strategies. For example, our attorneys recently negotiated and drafted a technology development agreement between a U.S. client and an overseas entity involving the licensing of domestic and foreign patents, trade secrets, and transfer of substantial technology.
Several of our attorneys are members of the Licensing Executives Society International. Others are active in the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM).
In licensing matters, our attorneys often work closely with the firm's Entrepreneurial Services Group to advise clients on such matters as business structure, labor, employment, and employee benefits. Attorneys in the firm also have significant experience in venture capital, estate planning and succession issues, private placements, initial public offerings, recapitalization and various forms of debt and equity issues.
