Technology Transfer

Since before the passage of the Bayh-Dole Act, Quarles & Brady has been representing research institutions engaged in technology transfer, and we remain at the forefront of innovative solutions for research institutions engaged in cutting-edge research. Our attorneys understand all aspects of tech transfer, from technology evaluation and patent prosecution to licensing and patent enforcement.

Our technology transfer attorneys have helped research institutions bring groundbreaking research to market, such as human stem cell technologies and medical imaging advancements. Universities, foundations, research hospitals, health care organizations, museums, and clinical research organizations have all brought a wide array of products and services to market with our assistance.

We represent clients in the formation of patent strategies, patent prosecution, license negotiation, intellectual property and patent licensing, business startups, intellectual property enforcement, and patent litigation, providing comprehensive legal services that successfully move technology from the lab to the marketplace and fully protect it. We understand and help clients in the prosecution of federal research patents and licenses, government-funded research patents and licenses, National Institutes of Health (NIH) patents and licenses, university patents and patent licensing, hospital patents and patent licensing, and health care patents or patent licensing.
