A licensing attorney can benefit you by writing contracts to protect your intellectual property rights. If you own a copyright, trademark, or patent and someone would like to use it, call on an expert attorney to make sure your work is protected. Licensing attorneys write contracts detailing specifically how someone may use your property and how much you will be paid for each use, and also the recourse available to you if someone violates your licensing agreement.
