Rob Cobley

Rob Cobley is a technology and intellectual property lawyer at Harper James Solicitors.
From the contracts you have with your employees to the contracts you have with your partners, customers and suppliers, if you are a business generating IP this webinar will give you practical insight on how to protect your intellectual property and maximise the opportunity from those commercial relationships. Topic areas covered include: 
• Collaboration and development agreements – structuring the deal, understanding background and foreground IP, who owns the results of joint projects. The risks around jointly-owned IP, exploitation, working with academia, warranties and IP indemnities. 
• The risks of outsourcing and using consultants and freelancers – what happens when things go wrong? 
• Employment contracts – basic terms and restrictive covenants. 
• Protecting know-how – keeping things confidential and when to use your NDA.
