Collaboration agreement lawyers

Our commercial lawyers provide strategic advice on a range of collaboration and commercial joint venture agreements, frequently drafting, reviewing and negotiating detailed agreements to protect our clients’ commercial interests.

Co-operation between parties, to share knowledge and expertise, offers many commercial advantages with the parties able to benefit from shared risk and rewards. There are however many potential pitfalls if a collaboration arrangement or commercial joint venture is not planned and structured carefully. A lack of detail and clarity at the outset can result in costly and damaging disputes for both parties further down the line. This is particularly the case in relation to the ownership, and exploitation rights, of intellectual property generated during the arrangement. Our lawyers work to identify the risks, issues and potential pitfalls so as to structure effective and lasting arrangements, with all parties knowing where they stand.

A network of international lawyers
