Technology & IP Transactions Practice Launch
Cross-border and domestic technology and intellectual property transactions have become standard practice for many businesses of all sizes, across all industries. The new cross-disciplinary practice is an answer to the growing need to manage these transactions, as businesses seek sophisticated legal counsel that is well-versed in negotiating and closing sales, licensing, technology research and development, and other agreements and that takes an approach that meets clients’ needs with the big picture in mind.
This practice focuses on business transactions driven by intangible assets, technological assets, and intellectual property rights. The group will help clients structure and negotiate commercial IP agreements to minimize business and financial risks while achieving short- and long-term objectives..
Managing Shareholder Larry Campagna lauded the launch of the new group as an “interdisciplinary approach to deal making.” He added: “Our firm has been representing a wide variety of companies in intellectual property motivated transactions for years. This newly designated section will continue to draw on the many different talents of our firm and support our clients as they grow and expand their technology worldwide.”
The new multidisciplinary team includes attorneys from the Intellectual Property; Corporate, Securities, and Finance; and Tax practices and will bring the technological know-how to bear in all types of transactions. The firm’s Intellectual Property lawyers hold scientific and technical degrees and have a comprehensive experience in IP prosecution, diligence, and litigation matters that lend them strategic insights into the technology, business, and legal issues, allowing the team to structure the optimal solution for the client, whether the matter involves a single transaction or is part of a much larger deal.
