Research & development
Vertex Law has an established history of supporting and promoting innovative businesses in Kent and the south-east and having lawyers experienced in how R&D projects work, both in industry and in educational establishments, is what sets us apart from other less experienced law firms.
Whether we are advising on how to 'spin-out' a fledgling technology company from a university research programme, or on a collaborative research project between commercial entities, our technology lawyers have the knowledge and experience to help you achieve your ultimate goal.
We can cut through the complexities of:
- Background intellectual property
- Foreground intellectual property
- Derivative intellectual property
- Jointly owned intellectual property
- Jointly authored intellectual property
- Royalty stacking
- Assignment and licences
These are a few of the issues, and our lawyers can help you develop an appropriate strategy and approach for your circumstances.
