Licensing Executives Society

The Licensing Executives Society (LES) was founded in the USA in 1965 by a group of licensing professionals. LES is a world-wide non-profit association of licensing professionals with the aim of helping its members gain knowledge, acquire skills and make contacts with their counterparts around the world. 

LES provides a unique opportunity for alert companies to make new contacts and exchange ideas, thus providing a basis for successful technology transfers and licensing of industrial and intellectual property rights.
