The Parr Brown International law group assists clients with international operations in the areas of finance, trade disputes and other general commercial matters. We also facilitate foreign investment of equity and debt and related investment restructuring in U.S. real estate, particularly from Canada and the Pacific Rim.
Our lawyers also provide legal counsel regarding intellectual property matters for international clients in the areas of licensing and distribution agreements, trademark and copyright infringement, consultation and litigation, and patent prosecution and litigation.
IP Licensing Experience includes:
- Licensing and/or acquiring rights in intellectual property, domestically and internationally.
- Assisting clients with a wide variety of intellectual property agreements, including patent, copyright, and trademark license agreements, trademark co-existence agreements, master services agreements, non-disclosure agreements, invention assignment agreements, Internet-related agreements, OEM, distribution and reseller agreements, confidentiality agreements and transfer agreements.
- Representing foreign and domestic clients in international licensing deals in Asia, Europe and Australia.
- Obtaining FDA approval for a publicly-traded Japanese multinational company with offices throughout Asia and in Europe for the importation of radiological devices into the United States.
We pursue legal options that offer clients the most efficient and economical resolution in line with the client's business objectives and strategies. In many cases where clients have been accused of infringement, we have researched the situation and responded with letters articulating the client's positions. Often, based on the strength of such letters, no further action has been required. When appropriate, we employ alternative dispute resolution strategies consistent with the client's objectives, but we are equally qualified and staffed to pursue complex litigation strategies under the most adversarial of conditions.
