The basis for a valuable relationship

Whether it is about starting a long-term partnership or bringing your technology or research to a third party, the relationship thrives on a legal framework that is solid and fair. Our expertise is focused on the kind of agreements that cover all the different phases of your collaboration. From sharing confidential information and material, to using an option or a license to allow a third party to assess or exploit Leiden research results and technology. We can also offer assistance if you need a legal framework to set up a research collaboration, whether it’s for joint research, for providing services and consultancy or for the conducting clinical trials.
