IP Licensing

High-Tech Business Lawyers for Intellectual Property Licensing in Silicon Valley, San Mateo, and Across California

IP LicensingIntellectual property (IP) licensing law involves the exchange of IP rights from the original or current owner to a third party. Usually the third party is paying to use a trademark, create a product based on a patented idea or use a copyrighted work. It is important for both parties to go into these agreements carefully and to resolve related disputes efficiently, with the help of an experienced team of intellectual property lawyers.

At SAC Attorneys LLP, in San Jose, California, we represent clients throughout the Silicon Valley and beyond. With decades of combined legal experience, our attorneys have a thorough understanding of all aspects of IP law and we can protect your interests in any type of IP licensing matter.

IP Licensing Agreements

Our San Jose business attorneys represent individuals and businesses in intellectual property licensing agreements. Whether you are selling your IP rights or paying for rights to use someone else’s intellectual property, our attorneys can look over the proposed contract and help you understand your rights and options, as well as the potential pitfalls of a proposed licensing agreement.

We can assist clients with a wide range of IP licensing agreements, including:

  • Exclusive licenses
  • Nonexclusive licenses
  • Sole licenses
IP Licensing Disputes

Disputes and litigation arising from IP licensing agreements can be complex, protracted and extremely contentious. When an IP licensing dispute reaches the level of litigation, there is a lot at stake. Our business litigation attorneys have a wealth of experience handling complicated matters of this kind. We can protect your rights at the negotiating table or in the courtroom.

Whenever possible, we try to resolve IP licensing law disputes through negotiation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). In most cases, this approach is more efficient and can result in more favorable results for everyone involved. Only when we know that ADR is not a viable option will we take a matter to litigation. But when we do take a case to court, we do so aggressively and with an eye towards swift, decisive victory for our clients.

Client Reviews
Mr. Cai Is a Diligent Attorney. My sister and I were defendants in a civil litigation case. We hired James Cai and his law firm, SAC Attorneys LLP. Mr. Cai is a diligent attorney and responded to our questions in a timely fashion. He and his staff were very helpful in keeping us informed of the proceedings of the case and in explaining each step. Mr. Cai is also very conscientious of fees and costs, and avoided unnecessary charges. The results of the Summary Adjudication sided with us. The Court Trial resulted in the “Final Statement of Decision” and “Judgment after Court Trial” overwhelmingly siding with us. Cynthia F.
I Am Truly Impressed. After spending a significant amount of time, money and efforts with my previous counsel at a larger law firm without getting meaningful results, I transferred my employment matter to SAC Attorneys LLP. The attorneys there were able to understand the complex situations of my case and put together an aggressive litigation strategy. We were able to file a compelling complaint within a week and forced the opposing party, which was represented by one of the largest law firms in California, to make a substantial settlement offer shortly thereafter. I am truly impressed by the no nonsense and results oriented approach by SAC Attorneys LLP attorneys. A job well done! X. Gao
They Took Time to Understand Our Technology. I am the founder of a bioinformatics start-up in the Silicon Valley and chose SAC Attorneys LLP as our corporate counsels. Their attorneys have great experience with high tech start-ups and were able to offer a highly competitive service plan while not sacrificing a bit of their quality of services. They took time to understand our technology and provided value added services by introducing investors and job candidates to us. We regard our attorneys at SAC Attorneys LLP not only as our legal advisors but also our venture partners. Dr. Pete S.
