We have broad experience with all forms of technology - including biology, chemistry, computer software, and physics, among others - with many of our attorneys having degrees in these disciplines.
Our experience covers all structures of transactions. We have represented clients in IP and technology acquisitions, dispositions and licenses; research and development agreements; strategic alliances and other forms of joint collaborations; outsourcing arrangements; and all forms of internet and e-commerce transactions; among others.
Our experience covers all industries. We represent clients involved in a diversity of sectors including pharma/biotech; financial services, computer software/hardware; consumer products; insurance; and energy; among others. Our lawyers not only stay up-to-date on legal developments but they also make time to understand the industries in which our clients operate so that we can understand the business "drivers" of the deal and provide additional value.
We handle many stand-alone transactions involving only technology and intellectual property assets. We also collaborate with our colleagues in other practice groups to provide value-added legal teams in corporate mergers, financings and restructurings involving technology and intellectual property assets.
Intangible assets such as technology and IP are often the most valuable and important parts of a transaction. These type of assets are unique because they can evolve over time. The law applicable to these assets is complex. On one hand it is rapidly evolving. Yet, on the other hand, the analysis often involves applying new forms of technology and IP to older laws because that evolution has not progressed quickly enough. Corporate risk mitigation leads to the conclusion that this area requires the services of attorneys who focus 100% of their time on technology and intellectual property transactions. We are those lawyers. Let us help you on your next technology and IP transaction.
