An increasing number of businesses develop, use, or otherwise rely on intellectual property of one type or another. KLM&R advises clients respecting intellectual property development, licensing and transfers as well as the creation and documentation of joint ventures, strategic alliances, or other collaborative relationships that are frequently used to develop and exploit intellectual properties. Where appropriate, KLM&R attorneys coordinate their work with outside patent, trademark and copyright counsel where formal protective measures are required, both domestically and internationally.
