Mr. Donnelly has drafted and assisted clients in negotiating license agreements to settle of patent litigation, including licenses creatively addressing tricky issues related to most-favored-licensee clauses and assignability provisions; coexistence agreements for resolving trademark oppositions and cancellations or for securing allowance of trademark registrations, including agreements with worldwide scope resolving disputes in multiple jurisdictions; confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements relating to trade secrets and pending patent applications; and assignment agreements relating to trademark registrations, patents, and/or copyrights.
