Ellen frequently advises on high value research and development collaborations and licensing and option deals. She also advises on a range of other commercial agreements including franchising agreements and manufacturing and supply arrangements. Ellen also supports our IP litigation practice by advising on settlement agreements, and supports our corporate and financing teams advising on IP issues arising in the context of corporate transactions.
