Protecting intellectual property is a critical issue in technology companies. The need for this kind of protection varies from venture to venture and depends on its sphere of activity, each with its own unique needs.

The firm provides intellectual property legal services to technological incubators, technology transfer companies, and international and local companies operating in the fields of hardware, software, communications, energy, internet, new media, cleantech, life sciences, and biotechnology.

 

Our work in this field includes forging a company’s business strategy with regard to intellectual property. We also draft and draw up a variety of agreements relating to the design, development, and realization of intellectual property assets, including confidentiality agreements, authorizations, licenses, sub-licenses, and user licenses, as well as various forms of strategic cooperation in the development and commercialization of intellectual property. In addition, we advise companies on intellectual property matters in merger and acquisition transactions and provide representation to such companies when disputes arise. 

 

Our firm also possesses considerable experience handling the unique aspects of online activities, including copyrights, counterfeiting, terms of use, slander, and privacy policy.

This is a significant step, which could revolutionize entrepreneurial innovation in Israel and make it easier on many Israelis who wish to protect future patents. In the course of the fast-track process, the application is not considered for a year, and applicants are able to set an early submission date for the patent's registration.
