Intellectual Property Licensing Attorneys

Intellectual property licensing agreements allow you to enhance the value of your innovations to a level beyond what you could have achieved with your own resources.

A non-disclosure agreement or non-compete agreement is often the first step taken when entering licensing discussions.

Our attorneys advise and assist you in these and related areas.

Intellectual Property Licensing Agreements

Vidas, Arrett & Steinkraus, P.A. frequently works with companies wishing to license technology or commercial rights to other companies, as well as with companies wishing to license from other companies.

We draft intellectual property licensing agreements and review proposed agreements, with the purpose of ensuring protection of your company's interests. We have assisted in the creation of international intellectual property licensing agreements involving complex technology and commercial rights. We have established relationships with law firms in major industrialized nations and work through them to identify specific legal and commercial issues which need to be resolved.

Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreements

Deciding what to divulge to a potential supplier, licensee or strategic partner presents a number of dilemmas. You need to provide your associates with the information they need to work successfully with your firm, while you retain control over technology still under development, trade secrets or other vital data.

Non-Compete Agreements

Vidas, Arrett & Steinkraus, P.A. provides advice, counsel and drafting services regarding non-compete agreements, usually for purposes relating to specific technology issues.
