Each year, thousands of discoveries originate in the fruitful minds of institutional researchers. Calfee’s technology transfer practice group helps research institutions and their corporate partners convert these valuable discoveries into income-generating assets.
Our technology transfer experts regularly counsel institutions and their licensees in a broad range of transactions. By assembling a multidisciplinary team, including lawyers from our intellectual property, capital raising, and government relations practices, we find cohesive solutions to the unique challenges presented by moving technology out of labs and into the market.
In addition to transactions, Calfee assists major research institutions with establishing internal innovations programs, intellectual property cultivation exercises, internal intellectual property practices and policies, and licensing programs to monetize intellectual property resulting from years of research and funding.
