TECHNOLOGY TRANSACTIONS

We have more attorneys dedicated to technology transactions than any other law firm in the world. Our attorneys negotiate hundreds of successful business and strategic collaborations every year, including strategic alliances, corporate partnerships, complex commercial transactions, license agreements, joint ventures, cooperative development arrangements, manufacturing and other sourcing agreements, and online and offline distribution agreements, all of which place our clients in optimal positions to thrive in today's complex global marketplace. In some industries, government and university licenses and development agreements are common, and we have a long history of negotiating such transactions. Our practice also includes intellectual property asset purchases and sales; mergers, acquisitions, and spin-offs; and intellectual property litigation settlement agreements. With extensive experience in these matters and the particular industries in which they arise, as well as deep relationships with many of the largest companies and financing sources in these sectors, we add value not only in crafting and negotiating the agreements, but also in advising on industry norms and establishing the most favorable business terms for our clients.

  • Software

  • E-commerce and mobile payments
