Our Approach

Our team is devoted exclusively to collaborations, licensing, and other technology transactions. And we work with our clients' business and legal teams to understand the key objectives and sensitivities specific to each deal. We handle the “in-licensing” of technology from universities and research institutions. We focus on distributorship agreements for the marketing of products in new territories. And we take on complex joint ventures and strategic alliances between clients and larger corporate partners who bring market strength — and financing, product development, manufacturing, and regulatory expertise — to assist in bringing our clients' products from the research laboratory to the commercial market. We help clients get from point 'A' to structured success.

​Areas of Focus
  • Collaborations, joint ventures, and strategic alliances
  • Licensing and tech transfer
  • IP acquisitions and dispositions
  • Clinical trial arrangements
  • Royalty monetization
  • Advertising, marketing, and branding issues
