Intellectual Property

Technology & Royalty Acquisition

For companies, inventors, and individuals rich in intellectual property, traditional loans or equity financings are not the only way to raise capital. Royalties can be the means to help you fund your next project. We can help you set up a royalty stream by licensing your intellectual property to a company that has the established infrastructure necessary to market and sell it. Or we can help you sell your interest in a royalty stream to an investor in exchange for revenue. Either way you choose to do it, Mintz Levin’s IP attorneys have deep experience with these types of transactions as well as with a broad range IP of assets and technologies to safeguard your interests.

Our attorneys bring together inventors, R&D companies, and other holders of IP assets with investors active in royalty financings and companies that actively acquire intellectual property.
