IP / IT & Innovation

Inno­va­tion and intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty are the core assets of any entre­pre­neur or company. 

At Cresco, we assist you in acquir­ing and devel­op­ing IP assets, lever­ag­ing their val­ue for growth, and pro­tect­ing and enforc­ing your rights through con­trac­tu­al mech­a­nisms and dis­pute resolution.

We assist com­pa­nies through­out their entire growth cycle, from start-up to large pub­lic com­pa­nies, in devis­ing and imple­ment­ing inno­va­tion strate­gies to man­age, pro­tect and com­mer­cial­ize their intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty portfolio. 

We are very focused on the intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty rights chain of title and free­dom to oper­ate of com­pa­nies, includ­ing when act­ing on behalf of investors.

Our inno­va­tion and intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty lawyers are not only legal experts, but also have a sound com­mer­cial under­stand­ing of the high­ly com­pet­i­tive and chal­leng­ing envi­ron­ment in which entre­pre­neurs and com­pa­nies operate.

As a trust­ed busi­ness part­ner we struc­ture and nego­ti­ate IP and ICT relat­ed mat­ters, both domes­tic and inter­na­tion­al, including:

  • Brand and oth­er intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty protection
  • Cor­po­rate part­ner­ing and strate­gic alliance transactions
  • R&D deals and co-own­er­ship agreements
  • Group IP struc­tur­ing and licens­ing arrangements
  • Outscourc­ing arrangements
  • OEM agree­ments
  • distribution/​agency contracts

In addi­tion, Cresco lawyers pro­vide prac­ti­cal and busi­ness ori­ent­ed advice in a broad range of tech­nol­o­gy-relat­ed mat­ters and reg­u­la­to­ry issues, includ­ing reg­u­la­tion of per­son­al infor­ma­tion pri­va­cy and data col­lec­tion rights in the Unit­ed States and Europe, out­sourc­ing, e-com­merce and unfair trade practices.
