Collaboration

There are many ways to go about exploiting your Intellectual Property. On the one hand, you may wish to manufacture and sell a product yourself, or provide a personal service (while preventing others from stealing your idea). On the other hand, you may want to sit back and let the royalties roll in while you get on with your day job. We can advise you with both of these strategies, and those inbetween.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality

Confidentiality agreements, also known as Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs), set out the conditions under which information is disclosed by one party to another party. It defines and restricts how the information, which may relate to any form of Intellectual Property such as an invention, may be used by the receiving party.

These agreements may be one-way, in that only one party is disclosing information, or two-way, in that both parties are disclosing information. Of course, if there are more than two parties the agreements could be multi-way. Such agreements are commonplace in business.

We can provide you with a tailored confidentiality agreement. Also, we are able to consider any such agreement which you have been asked to sign and advise you as to what it really means.

We can provide you with a tailored licence agreement. We can also help you negotiate licence agreements. If you have been asked to sign a licence agreement we can advise you as to what it really means.
