Licensing comes in all kinds of forms: from the model release in the case of photographs to software contracts up to complex R & D contracts; often the granting of rights of use lie hidden deep within a long contract. We can advise you!
The transfer of IT-functions to third parties can be a delicate situation. One has to protect company data, ensure secure operation, and keep response times. The relevant contracts require project management mixed with legal know-how. We can advise you on your outsourcing projects.
Distribution and Franchising
What is allowed in selective distribution? Is the distributer allowed to sell in another contract area through his website? The answers are diverse, and can be found within contract, - competition – and anti-trust laws as well as in IP-laws. We can advise you on your distribution strategy and contract preparation.

We can tell you which rights you can transfer and which rights you are better off keeping for yourself.
Artists, designers and architects also need to take care of their rights: these are your assets! In this field, we also advise advertising agencies and contractors.
