The attorneys in our Business Group regularly counsel clients in these two very important areas.
A business will often license its technology to another business as a key element of its overall strategy. Both the licensor and the licensee need to be protected, to the extent possible, by the license or technology transfer agreement. Clients may need advice on Open Source software licensing. Sometimes two businesses will enter an agreement to develop technology jointly. Technology transfers and licensing are important components of our Business and Intellectual Property practices. We have extensive experience in confronting and resolving the business and legal issues that affect the negotiation, documentation and implementation of sharing technology. We routinely assist our clients in the areas of software licensing, trademarks, patents, copyrights and trade secrets, and the negotiation, drafting and implementation of related VAR, OEM, distributorship agreements and cloud-based computing use and services agreements.
