Industries across many sectors have become more tech savvy, creating prime opportunities to modernize or even revolutionize existing businesses through the formation of strategic relationships maximizing the exchange, use, sharing and development of goods, services and new technologies.

We provide experienced counsel to clients in a wide range of complex business transactions, including the sale or procurement of business critical goods and services, the purchase and sale of equipment, hardware, systems and other goods and services, and the licensing of technology, software, content and data. We represent buyers as well as sellers across many different industries, including wireline and wireless telecommunications service providers, financial services institutions, media companies and health care institutions. We also represent a number of software and equipment vendors. This has given us a greater understanding of the vendors’ needs and allows us to structure solutions that work for both buyers and sellers.

We regularly represent technology developers and owners that wish to commercialize their intellectual property as well as businesses that require cutting edge solutions to improve current business processes or to support new business offerings. We focus our licensing practice on transactions involving the development, licensing and commercialization of software and other technology, data and intellectual property. Many transactions in this area involve the procurement or sale of integrated systems, consisting of software, hardware and support services, such as integration and maintenance. We also assist in joint development agreements, distribution and marketing arrangements. In addition, we focus on specific aspects of technology licensing, such as open source software and the impact of virtualization.
