Whether between related parties and entities, or involving third-parties, properly structuring a license, acquisition or sale of intellectual property rights is crucial in order to properly secure, maintain and commercialize those rights. Given the intangible nature of intellectual property rights, it is important that agreements relating to such rights are well-drafted and clear. Doing so upfront will help ensure that parties have well-defined and successful relationships and will help reduce the likelihood of costly litigation in the future.

The services offered by our licensing and transactions practice group cover all matters relating to the drafting and negotiation of agreements concerning the licensing or assignment of intellectual property rights.

When I was reflecting on the year 2020, and thinking of the people that had the most impact on me, you [Rasha El-Tawil] quickly came to mind. I was stressed and uncomfortable for the past few years, but when you took my case, I have since been able to relax and focus on other aspects of my life. I want to take a moment to thank you for making my 2020 easier. Not only have you contributed to my personal case, but you’ve also taught me the traits that an amazingly kind and intelligent lawyer should have. -T.H.
