Negotiating Patent and Know-how license agreements can be tricky. Striking a balance that benefits all interested parties isn’t easy, and making sure your legally-binding agreements clearly reflect everyone’s expectations is even harder. When done wrong, an oversight could result in major losses on either end.

Make sure you understand what you’re getting into before entering a Patent and Know-how license agreement by attending the next Laws of Innovation discussion! Legal experts from Woods Oviatt Gilman, Dennis B. Danella and Ron Kisicki, will go over a sample Patent and Know-how license to show you what individual terms could look like from both the perspective of the licensor and licensee.

Date: August 29, 2019 - 8:30am to 10:30am
Location: Iron Key Studio - 8301 W Washington St., Peoria, AZ, 85345
