Our attorneys are experienced in the representation of clients in transactions involving the acquisition, licensing and distribution of all types of technology.

We also negotiate and draft trademark, copyright and patent licenses and various technology agreements, including software license agreements, outsourcing agreements, technology transfer agreements and hosting agreements. We have represented clients with respect to agreements that range in value from thousands of dollars to more than $10 million.

We are particularly skilled and experienced in negotiating and drafting Internet banking and software development agreements for some of the world’s largest banks. Lastly, several of our attorneys have acted, or are currently acting, as in-house counsel for various clients, including overseeing crucial licensing programs.
