CAPRI negotiates, drafts and interprets all types of contracts involving Industrial and Intellectual Property (assignment and licensing of IP rights, software, logos, etc., research, development and subcontracting agreements, co-ownership agreements, confidentiality agreements, trade mark coexistence agreements, agreements involving unpatented know-how, etc.).
We also handle the registration procedures for agreements, particularly assignments and licenses, in Patent Offices in France and abroad.
We usually propose to attend meetings for the preparation and negotiation of contracts. This enables us to adapt the sensitive clauses of contracts in the light of the special context and the wishes of the contracting parties.
A client collaborated with a research consultancy to develop a medical device. The research consultancy holds several patents covering particular aspects of this device. Our client was ready to take a license for these patents.
CAPRI not only studied the scope and validity of the patents, but also took part in several negotiation meetings.
Our researches and analyses were decisive in evaluating the price of the license, which finally was reduced.
