More than ever, corporate transactions involve the sale or purchase of intellectual property assets, including trademarks, copyrights, patents and license agreements. Herrick conducts the due diligence you need to ensure good title to IP assets, checks on liens and security interests, drafts non-disclosure and asset purchase agreements, and arranges for recordals of trademarks, copyright and patent assignments with applicable government agencies. We can help you purchase IP assets out of bankruptcy, sell IP assets to maximize their value, terminate or preserve license rights, and protect IP assets from creditor claims or maximize IP asset values to protect creditors.
We have U.S. and international licensing experience in many market sectors, such as apparel, toys, photography, art, publishing, financial services, medical device patents, celebrity endorsements, sponsored research and development agreements, content and data usage, and general consumer merchandise. We can even help your marketing department develop traditional and on-line marketing programs, including tie-ins, promotional sweepstakes and give-aways.
