Higher Education Technology Transfer Issues

At The Glennon Law Firm, P.C., we represent faculty members who have invented something or contributed intellectual property to an invention only to have the invention assigned to their college or university. Far too often, educational institutions seek to monetize professors’ intellectual property without understanding their fiduciary responsibilities to faculty members. In many situations, professors don’t receive payment for their contributions or inventions, or at least not full payment.

Our higher education employment lawyers in Rochester represent faculty members at universities and colleges and fight to ensure that they are fairly compensated for their intellectual property.
