Contract law

Licence agreements

A licence is the legal basis for the permission — as a rule against payment of a licence fee — to make use of intellectual property. Such licence agreements are often concluded in regard to patents, utility models, trademarks, copyrighted works or software. The licence agreement may grant exclusive or non-exclusive rights, may restrict its scope of application geographically or temporally and define the market segment or market region for which the licence applies. Our experts advise and support you in preparing contracts, drafting know-how or support agreements, recording non-disclosure agreements and formulating agreement on contractual penalties. In the event of contract breaches, we will enforce your rights out of court and in the civil courts.
