IP Transactions & Assignments
ABG’s provides its clients with sound legal advice and support to secure agreements referring to the ownership and exploitation of inventions and other intangible assets
IP agreements are key to obtain a return on the investment in R&D, and to structure the successful development of an innovative project.
We have ample experience drafting confidentiality, R&D, material transfer, joint venture, technology transfer, license, assignment, agency and distribution agreements.
We also assist our clients in the assessment of royalty rates in different fields of technology, and the terms and conditions of the technology transfer agreements in accordance with the type of company and the maturity of the project.
For example, we are very active on the assignment of technology initially owned by governmental agencies, research institutions and universities, as a first step towards creating a spin-off company, often securing rights on an exclusive and global basis.
We also coordinate the recordal of assignments and license agreements at the IP offices around the world.
