License agreements - Means for commercial success

The importance of licensing agreements in today's economic life is immense. Thus, industrial property rights (patents, trademarks, design rights) are not only used to protect their own innovations, but are also actively used as a source of income through licensing.

Particularly in the face of strong competition in fierce markets, situations may arise where companies have to determine, in the context of their own development activity, that planned projects could interfere with protective rights of third parties. This concerns both technical products, as well as marks for goods and services. In such cases, a license agreement may be the solution by which the proprietor of an industrial property right entitles a third party to use the property right against payment of license fees.

We offer our clients comprehensive strategic advice in all licensing matters. This includes the development of licensing agreements in patent, trademark and design matters as well as negotiating with our clients' business partners.
