Negotiating intellectual property (IP) transactions is not an easy task and can be extremely demanding. In order to avoid common missteps, there are some considerations that any person negotiating IP assets should bear in mind. First and foremost, as negotiations are deemed to start before sitting at the negotiating table, carefully preparing oneself beforehand proves to be fundamental for beneficial and successful discussions.
