Technology & IP
Eigers assists clients in developing and implementing strategies to acquire, develop, protect, enforce and commercialize technology and IP on a worldwide basis.
We structure and negotiate corporate partnering and strategic alliance transactions, R&D deals, licensing arrangements, marketing arrangements, OEM agreements, distribution/agency contracts and joint ventures, typically representing emerging companies in their negotiations with much larger companies, both domestic and international.
We advise fast-growing companies in all technology and life sciences sectors, from software, hardware, Internet, communications, semiconductor, and other information technology and content companies to biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical-device and bioinformatics companies. We have structured an extraordinary variety of partnering transactions, ranging from those with more traditional, upfront, milestone and royalty-based payment deals to the most sophisticated put/call arrangements.
Eigers provides practical, business-oriented advice that is not otherwise readily available to emerging companies, and, accordingly have built a leading emerging growth company IP strategy and transactions practice.
