Intellectual Property

Woodsford prides itself on its intellectual property partnerships.  Whether you’re an inventor of a patent that is being infringed, a holder of trade secrets that have been misappropriated, or the owner of a trademark that is now in use without your permission, Woodsford is here to help.

Woodsford frequently partners with inventors who have devoted their lives to bringing new and exciting technology into the world and to building their companies from the ground up.  When large corporations use an inventor’s patents without taking a license, these big businesses profit at the expense of the true innovator.  With financial assistance from Woodsford, inventors can afford to hire the competent counsel and qualified experts needed to see litigation through to a proper resolution.

Woodsford also recognizes that not every aggrieved IP holder is able to engage in lengthy and costly litigation.  Universities may not want to risk perceived reputational harm associated with being a frequent IP litigant, and small businesses may not be in a position to risk potential counterclaims from aggressive infringers.  Woodsford’s capital flexibility allows us to facilitate asset transfers in these situations, standing in for the IP holder in court while allowing our partners to share in the recovery they deserve.

As a socially conscious investor, the merits matter at Woodsford.  Woodsford performs all of its diligence in-house and boasts highly experienced IP litigators as underwriters, ensuring that only meritorious actions receive our funding.  Woodsford works with individuals and companies who aim to use their intellectual property in socially responsible ways.
