Scope Of Services

We don’t just practice law; we help clients succeed in a complex and dynamic global marketplace. We’re committed to developing tailored, cost-effective strategies to transform legal challenges into business opportunities, based upon a thorough understanding of each client’s unique set of circumstances, resources and objectives.


Licensing, Business & Consulting

Although the business goals of owners of intellectual property vary widely, we believe that the protection, maintenance and enforcement of intellectual property rights should reflect and reinforce those goals. Combining extensive business experience and legal expertise with insight, foresight and prudent judgment, the LGP team also provides counseling to effectively strategize and implement integration of your intellectual property policy with your business objectives. Of course, these services include drafting, negotiating and concluding various business agreements, including marketing, joint venture and licensing agreements involving all forms of proprietary intellectual property.
