From startups to international market leaders, our technology clients are changing the world with major advancements in software, hardware, electronics, infrastructure and services.
Technology innovators call on us to advise on a wide range of commercial endeavors, including the development and enforcement of copyrights and trademarks; technology transactions, including transfers, licensing, acquisitions, sales and joint ventures; marketing, distribution and outsourcing agreements and other critical concerns.
We have also contributed to the growth of many startup and emerging technology companies, through venture capital and private equity transactions, financings, capital markets transactions and pragmatic day-to-day counsel on corporate, litigation, intellectual property, government relations and real estate concerns. In the area of employment, technology companies and senior executives often call on us to develop trade secret and restrictive covenant protections, and to litigate related employment disputes.
We have a significant body of work addressing legal, commercial and regulatory issues in a number of market segments. For example, we recently helped a Fortune 25 IT company navigate through its complex dealings with New York City’s technology officials. Google also called on our litigators to defend it a trial and appeal in New Jersey, and through our efforts the terms and enforceability of its online merchant "click-wrap" agreement were upheld.
