Why People Choose Morris & Kamlay
Anyone can do basic diligence for a deal. We do more by providing insight into the real business impact of IP issues in a transaction. We know that one of the best ways to judge a potential acquisition target is what they say about their IP – and what the IP says about the company. We are familiar with the issues that arise in complex transactions when significant IP rights are involved, and we help prevent unintentional loss of those rights.
