Strategies for Collaboration Agreements Focusing on Innovation

February 1, 2012

Partner Pamela L. Cox, Chair of IP Transactions, has authored an article entitled "Strategies for Collaboration Agreements Focusing on Innovation" which was published in the January 2012 issue of the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology.

This article discusses various ways that a collaboration agreement might facilitate effective communication and balance incentives, two key elements to a successful collaboration.

Collaborations are often "born" with the conception of a technology, but they can also be made through a deliberate process of identifying strategic synergies that should, with appropriate incentives, lead to innovation.

Pamela L. Cox concentrates on transactions and counseling related to IP strategies, protection and transfer. As a patent attorney who managed portfolios in-house, Ms. Cox understands her clients’ IP and agreement needs, and remains dedicated until they achieve their strategic objectives.
