Protection and valorization of innovations

Public and private stakeholders in the health sector are required to design and develop innovative products, whether as part of their internal research and development programmes or as part of scientific collaborations. These innovations, which can be protected by intellectual property rights, constitute important intangible assets which therefore require enhanced legal protection. Life Avocats advises and assists you in establishing a structured and effective policy for the protection and exploitation of your innovations.
  • Audit of intangible assets protected by intellectual property rights (copyrighted works, trademarks, industrial designs, patentable inventions, know-how, etc.)
  • Drafting, negotiation and review of agreements (consortium, partnership, co-development) and securing intellectual property issues
