We Understand the Business of Technology
We represent clients in virtually every industry in transactions involving technology and intellectual property rights. Whether your business is healthcare, e-commerce, biotech, media, entertainment or any other industry utilizing technology, our experienced negotiators and problem solvers know how to thoughtfully and strategically add value to your technological innovation.
And whether you are a start-up or an international powerhouse, a licensee or licensor, a vendor or a customer, we have the technical knowledge, the legal knowledge and the practical business judgment and experience you need.
Our attorneys work at the intersection of intellectual property and corporate law and fully understand how both interact in technology transactions. Combined with our deep industry and technology experience, we can advise you effectively on the acquisition, use, development and commercial application of technology. We have handled a wide spectrum of issues, ranging from technology transfer and commercialization agreements to enterprise-wide licenses for multi-location systems.
We're Team Builders
Our cross-disciplinary and highly collaborative approach allows us to provide you with an integrated team that covers all the relevant issues. For example, our commercial contracts team, which handles even the largest commercial transactions, works closely with our technology transactions team when needed – as do attorneys from our intellectual property group, tax group, employment group, corporate finance group and others when issues arise that require their experience.
Our Clients Tell It to the Press
Our team's concentration on the commercial aspects of technology and intellectual property distinguishes our corporate practice from that of many other firms.
According to IAM Licensing 250, compiled by Intellectual Asset Management magazine:
"Licensing sits at the apex of this firm’s corporate finance and technology practices. Practitioners are first and foremost business and transactional lawyers, who are equally endowed with solid expertise in technology and intellectual property. The team has the know-how and experience to handle any kind of commercial transaction involving the exploitation and monetization of intellectual property. Its work cuts across a range of industry sectors and technologies, although healthcare, software, life sciences and clean-tech are particular strongholds."
No matter the type of scope of your technology transactions, we’re here to smooth and manage the process so you can concentrate on your business and the technology that makes it successful.
