Wendy Zimbone, founding and managing partner of Talem IP Law, specializes in IP licensing, IP strategy, and contract negotiations.  She drafts and negotiates license agreements, development agreements, research agreements, SaaS agreements, hosting agreements, manufacturing/supplier agreements, and other commercial contracts.  Her practice emphasizes the importance of intellectual property in overall business strategy and technology commercialization.  She has assisted many clients in getting their technology to the marketplace and maximizing the value in the IP they create.
