Licensing transactions are becoming more complex than ever. The constantly evolving legal, regulatory and technical landscape drives the need to stay current in all of these key areas. Whether utilized to develop technology, expand or create market opportunities, or generate returns from existing assets, managing complex licensing transactions requires a broad and varied toolkit.  Additionally, whether licensing patents, copyrights, trade secrets or trademarks, the ability to structure, draft and negotiate complex license agreements is critical to a successful transaction.
