Clients need attorneys who recognize the client’s business, technology and objectives, who understand the problems that can arise after the deal is signed, and who have the experience to adapt available legal structures to the business needs of each transaction. Our attorneys have years of experience documenting and negotiating the complex transactions and contracts related to the development, protection and exploitation of valuable technology and intellectual property assets, and they know how to develop standard business agreements that function as business tools rather than obstacles.
