Assignments and Licences

Intellectual Property Rights have their own characteristics which are not the same as other types of property rights. To draft effective assignments and licence agreements it is important to understand the nature of those rights and the implications of all the clauses in an agreement; which clauses should be included and which should be omitted.

Dummett Copp’s attorneys are able to advise you regarding assignments and license agreements and have experience in drafting a variety of bespoke agreements, tailored to the particular legal situation.

Assignments of intellectual property rights, and licence agreements, also frequently require recordal at national and regional patent and trade mark offices. In large property portfolios this can involve complex recordal formalities in a number of territories, each having different procedures and time scales. Dummett Copp’s attorneys have experience in managing intellectual property rights all over the world, so you can be sure that the recordal process will be handled efficiently and cost effectively.
