How We Do It

Our technology transactions attorneys actively collaborate with members of the firm’s corporate, labor and employmententertainmentfinancial servicesgovernmenthealth carehospitalityintellectual propertylitigationreal estatesecurities and tax practice groups to provide a comprehensive and integrated representation for clients. This approach provides clients with the means to fully drive their strategies and reach their enterprise goals.

Our attorneys actively spend time with each client to learn about their technologies (or use of outsourced technology) and about their business needs and goals. We then focus on identifying and evaluating real-world risks and planning a strategic approach to addressing issues, negotiating deals and resolving matters on a proactive basis.

We also understand that every business has different needs during the business growth lifecycle. Training and experience working on technology transactions across this lifecycle enables our attorneys to bring a unique depth and breadth of experience to each representation, including development of forward-thinking counsel to assist our start-up and scale-up clients looking for long-term approaches to addressing their future growth and the ability to efficiently analyze and implement strategies for our mid-size and Fortune 500 clients.

Our technology transactions attorneys not only provide unparalleled service for our clients, but they also support the healthy growth of the technology industry in each of our communities. They regularly work with community leaders and technology executives to not only build a stronger marketplace, but also foster the development of more jobs and opportunities for our communities and technology clients.
