Intellectual property can be a valuable asset. In a business sale or change of business ownership, there are often intellectual property issues that must be addressed. In business transactions, AWD Law trademark lawyers can assist in ensuring intellectual property is appropriately transferred (or retained) and assignments are recorded with the proper governmental authorities.
Assignments and ownership of intellectual property issues can also arise in the employment context and with independent contractors or service providers. Licensing is another way for companies to monetize their brands through permissive use. AWD Law prepares and reviews license agreements for licensees and licensors of trademarks as well as patents and other intellectual property.
