The Importance of a Strong Licensing Agreement

Your company has worked hard to develop its intellectual property. It is understandable that you would want to protect it. But you want to accomplish that goal while retaining the ability to monetize your intellectual property and reap the financial benefits you’ve earned from your efforts.

Co-Development agreements, also known as joint development agreements (JDAs), can be vital to development, research, or commercial introduction of products and services.
