Our intellectual property licensing and partnering practice supports all stages of product development and distribution. We work with lawyers in our patent, regulatory, and corporate groups to offer coordinated advice in, among other things, compound inlicensing and outlicensing, licensing technology tools and access to technology platforms, partnership and joint ventures for product development, product development and co-development matters, collaborations and other joint research arrangements, feasibility and proof of concept partnerships, licensing from universities and nonprofit research institutes, a wide variety of matters relating to clinical trials, and manufacturing arrangements and quality agreements.
We also have particular experience in research and development matters involving biotech and pharmaceutical companies and nonprofits and universities. Our experience includes MTAs, CDAs, and other enabling agreements; CRADAs and other government funding and research matters; matters relating to databases, including access issues, patent and copyright issues, reach-through licensing issues, and transaction structures; and license options, development options, and other approaches to commercial development arising from research and collaboration relationships.
We also support our clients' work on their products during the regulatory process and after regulatory approval. We have extensive experience in product acquisition and disposition agreements; supply and manufacturing agreements; and marketing, distributing, co-marketing, co-promotion, and contract sales arrangements.
