Most IP boutiques will negotiate IP licenses. But few have mastered the craft. Those that have understand the business side of the agreement, not just the technology. Like good chess players, they strategize many moves ahead, analyzing possible opportunities and anticipating pitfalls. They understand the psychology and art of negotiation. And they draft simple, clear license terms that avoid later disputes.
Protecting your technology requires more than merely collecting patents; it requires a well-conceived strategy that maximizes protection for your most valuable innovations without wasting money and resources on dead-end technologies and patents that just collect dust on the shelf. Developing a strategy requires close collaboration between your innovators, your business strategists, and your IP lawyers. The best IP lawyers, therefore, have not only a strong grasp of your technology but also a sophisticated understanding of your business. Protecting your name, your brand, and other IP requires a similar forward-looking strategy.
