    Default Acquiring Rights to IP Created While Employed

    I worked for a company for several years on a project that resulted in a few patents and a significant amount of intellectual property relating to the prototype. Later, the company decided to exit the relevant industry and thus canceled the project. I am no longer employed by this company but I would like to acquire rights to just the prototype design IP. I should note that IP licensing is very common for this company, both as a provider of licenses and as a licensee. My question is, what is the best way to go about doing this? Should I contact a lawyer first, or would I be able to deal directly with the company's attorneys?

    You would be better off hiring a competent IP attorney to handle the negotiations. You can bet they will have one too. If you try to go it alone, you could wind up getting screwed.

    Thanks for the response. I absolutely plan on hiring an attorney before signing anything, but I have no idea what to expect in terms of cost. Is there a typical cost structure for negotiating such a contract?
