Silicon Valley IP Licensing & Transaction Lawyers

Intellectual Property Contracts

Valuable assets deserve the attention of a lawyer experienced with intellectual property issues. At the Hayes Scott Bonino Ellingson & McLay, LLP, law firm in Redwood City, we offer counseling about the protection of trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and other IP matters.

Our Silicon Valley IP agreements attorneys negotiate and draft contracts that license the use of intellectual property. For example, we have represented manufacturers and technology companies in licensing the use of technology. Both companies can benefit financially from the technology while maintaining limits on how the technology can be used.

Trademark clearance

Investigating whether a trademark is already registered requires more than a quick Internet search. Our IP transaction attorneys have extensive experience thoroughly investigating trademark registrations to help you avoid trademark dispute litigation.

IP licensing agreements have many uses:

  • Licensing technology to a manufacturer
  • Licensing components for use in a product
  • Licensing the use of a trademark under specific circumstances for specific markets
  • Licensing software for specific purposes
  • Licensing copyrighted material for carefully defined purposes

In every industry, it is often efficient and profitable to license technology, trademarks or copyrighted material. Each party to the transaction needs to know the rights and obligations of all parties.

The lawyers at Hayes Scott Bonino Ellingson & McLay understand the needs and objectives of business, and we respond quickly to our clients. Being first to market often begins with a fast and appropriate response in developing an effective licensing agreement.
