icons_large_v3_UniversityAt Oyen Wiggs, we work with a number of universities and public research institutions in an effort to monetize developments made by the institution through patents. Our lawyers are accustomed to working with university professors, who generally have multiple projects on the go, and also face unique pressures to publish their research and secure grant funding. We are sensitive to the need to implement practical approaches to protecting intellectual property to help balance the many competing priorities faced by universities and public research institutions.
