Negotiating is a form of art that the attorneys in the licensing group at MVS craft with efficiency, accuracy, and knowledge. With decades of experience, MVS attorneys have worked with corporations, small business, start-ups, universities, and individuals to help protect their intellectual property through various forms of licensing.

We work closely with our clients' and their corporate attorneys in reviewing, drafting and negotiating intellectual property provisions to maximize intellectual property investments.

Our goal in creating and negotiating licensing agreements is to do what is best for our client’s business while protecting our clients and their intellectual property through any foreseeable enforcement situation that may arise in the future, and to help acquire additional intellectual property to help progress and grow efficiently to mitigate potential legal challenges that can impede the same. The attorneys at MVS help to secure your intellectual property rights through a variety of contracts – non-disclosure agreements, asset acquisitions, non-compete agreements, trademark licenses, patent licenses, transfer of regulatory approvals, and employment agreements. It is important to consider all aspects of every intellectual property asset to help grow and protect our clients’ businesses. MVS licensing attorneys do just that to help their clients get the most value for their intellectual property.
