Collateralizing intellectual property in secured transactions

At Schwartz & Kanyock, LLC, we take pride in developing creative solutions where other commercial litigation law firms fail. An emerging area in the law of secure transactions involves collateralized intellectual property, such as patents for software and manufacturing processes. IP and its derivative works, which are difficult to value, introduce enormous complexity into loan instruments and subsequent litigation. Our skill in contract interpretation and the application of UCC regulations allows us to unwind intricate problems for our client’s benefit.
