We represent clients in the structuring of joint ventures, strategic alliances, licensing and distributorship arrangements and other forms of transactions that impact our client's valuable intellectual property rights. Our comprehensive business experience allows us to help ensure our clients receive practical advice and a clear understanding of the risks and rewards of different transactions. We have extensive experience assisting clients in preparing for and following through with mergers and acquisitions,negotiating consolidations, reorganizations, and buyouts.

Transactions

 From the initial conception of inventions through the process of monetizing them, Edge Law Group has the expertise to construct the agreements necessary to secure and protect the value of clients’ real and intellectual property rights. Different issues of technology ownership arise from the different relationships in which employees, consultants and outside contractors, joint venturers or collaborative research and development partners develop technology. We are sensitive to the pitfalls that you can encounter in these various situations and carefully craft these relationships from the outset to clarify and protect your rights through non‑disclosure agreements, employee invention disclosure and assignment agreements, consulting agreements, non-competition agreements, and research collaboration and joint development agreements. We also guide clients with the technology transfer agreements that are often the key to the successful commercialization of inventions. License agreements, complex assignment transactions, and the underlying due diligence and transfer of rights agreements are just a few of the different commercial relationships that we devise to help clients protect and secure the commercial benefits of their technology and business.
