Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA)

This example is a "One-Way CDA" for circumstances where a company would simply like to learn more about the non-public attributes of a technology. We also have a Mutual CDA, which generally contains the same language but involves a two-way exchange of information. Our CDA is fairly standard, containing guidelines for the transfer and use of confidential information.

Option Agreement
The option agreement is a short-term license, that allows a company to evaluate a technology for a set period of time.

License Agreement

This is our standard exclusive license with sublicensing rights template. Since every technology is unique in both value and nature, the structure of each license agreement and the relevant financial terms will vary. Through open and honest communication in the negotiation process, we make our best efforts to structure a license agreement to create a 'win-win' situation.
