We have developed a significant experience in relation to advising clients in relation to research and development agreements and the intellectual property considerations involved.
There can be significant and often complex intellectual property issues, relating to ownership and licensing of rights among other matters, when drafting research and development agreements. There will often be a conflict between the commercial objectives of the parties and the interests of the academic institution and individuals involved. Our experience of these transactions allows us to readily understand and come to grips with the tensions that often arise enabling us to be in a good position to assist with balancing the interests of all concerned and getting the deal done.
