It also addresses strategic issues in intellectual property, which are fast growing in importance for law firms and their clients. Lastly, Cynthia Cannady writes in a systematic way, without any jargon. A refreshing and highly valuable book!" --Dr. Georges Haour, Professor at IMD, (International Institute for Management Development), Lausanne, Switzerland "Anyone working with IP-related transactions will benefit from Technology Licensing and Development Agreements.
