Intellectual property and innovation counseling
Innovation and intellectual property are the core assets of any entrepreneur or company. At Cresco, it is our mission to assist you in acquiring and developing intellectual property assets, leveraging their value for growth, and protecting and enforcing your rights through contractual mechanisms and dispute resolution.
We assist companies throughout their entire growth cycle, from start-up to large public companies, in devising and implementing innovation strategies to manage, protect and commercialize their intellectual property portfolio. We are very focused on the intellectual property rights chain of title and freedom to operate of companies, including when acting on behalf of investors.
Our innovation and intellectual property lawyers are not only legal experts, but also have a sound commercial understanding of the highly competitive and challenging environment in which entrepreneurs and companies operate.
