A strong patent licensing program taps into the financial potential of your existing innovations. This not only creates the potential for substantial revenue streams over many years — it can also help fund an ongoing legacy of invention.
Slater Matsil works with technological pioneers to formulate and implement licensing programs tailored specifically for their needs. We also have extensive experience negotiating, developing, and drafting sophisticated patent licensing and cross-licensing arrangements, technology transfers, and alliance agreements for both domestic and international clients. We believe that an effective IP licensing program can provide as much economic benefit as a litigation program, but oftentimes more expediently, with less risk, less disruption to business operations and management, and significantly less cost to the company. While not all IP disputes can be resolved without litigation, we have frequently assisted clients in structuring negotiated resolutions that address the needs of both the patent holding party and the responding party, at times even leading to discussions for future cooperative efforts between the parties. Our patent licensing services include:
- Portfolio Evaluations
- Patent Analysis and Enforcement
- Patent Infringement and Validity Studies
- License Drafting and Negotiation
