D. Glass Associates: Licensing, Tech Transfer and Strategic Patent Management

  1. 1. D. Glass Associates, Inc. Licensing, Technology Transfer and Patent Management D. Glass Associates, Inc. (DGA) offers expert assistance to academic institutions as well as biotechnology and medical device companies in the management of many aspects of the patent and licensing process and industry-academic relations. D. Glass Associates can assist academic institutions (universities, medical centers and research institutions) that are temporarily short-handed due to staff turnover, maternity/paternity leave, or that do not maintain full-time tech transfer staff. DGA can cost-effectively handle many tech transfer functions on an outsourced basis and can also help licensing offices in assessing, marketing and licensing inventions and in negotiating a variety of tech transfer agreements. Technology Transfer, Licensing, and Industrial Relations •  Commercial assessments of new inventions. •  Preparation of marketing materials for new inventions, identify and contact potential corporate licensees. •  Negotiate, or assist in negotiation of, tech transfer agreements including license and option agreements, sponsored research agreements, CDAs and other industry contracts.

DGA has extensive experience dealing with major universities and academic medical centers. In addition, patent and licensing activities are often among the easiest corporate functions to outsource, and DGA can provide this service more cost-effectively than delegating the tasks to outside patent counsel. Management of In-House Patent Portfolios •  Monitor scientific developments at the company and at academic partners to identify patentable inventions. •  Liaison to outside attorneys in patent preparation and prosecution. •  Monitor a company's in-house portfolio, to provide strategic guidance and direction. •  Analyze the strength of proprietary or competing intellectual property, as part of strategic planning efforts.
