Technology Transfer

At RT Coopers we focus on the technological advances occurring within the university industry sector and provide a full legal service to universities, spinout companies, investors, technology transfer officers and researchers on all aspects of technology transfer. We combine specialist scientific knowledge and understanding of this industry sector with the legal expertise required to exploit any technology and/or products. We bring a wealth of experience to technology transfer and we can relate to scientists from all disciplines. Dr Rosanna Cooper CChem FRSC, who is in charge of technology transfer, worked as a postdoctoral scientist and as a senior chemist in the pharmaceutical and paper industries. As there are a number of legal issues surrounding the exploitation of technology and/or products, it is advisable to seek advice as early as the varying stages of research and development of a project and especially at the outset of negotiations with third parties.

'Our students union had specific legal requirements in the areas of employment and commercial law as well as commercial property.  Our aim was to instruct the services of a law firm which had sound knowledge and expertise in those areas coupled with the experience of working with organisations like ours.  We eventually settled on RT Coopers because they appeared to be client focussed and matched our criteria.  The quality and consistency of their services have surpassed our expectations.  Not only are the lawyers proactive, they possess a thorough understanding of the law and the issues facing a students’ union. They deliver practical and reliable legal solutions which have allowed us to get on with the day-to-day running of the union.  This combined with their friendly and efficient approach, means we would not hesitate to recommend their services.' Caston Matewu, Ex President, University of East London Students' Union
