We bring a practical business orientation, substantial technical sourcing and commercial experience, industry knowledge, and deep familiarity with legal matters to represent sophisticated innovators, start-ups, and dealmakers who demand creativity, flexibility, expertise, and nimble execution from their legal counsel.
Our attorneys represent buyers and sellers, digital assets and blockchain companies, and venture capitalists. Many have worked in business roles for leading companies in IT as well as the emerging digital assets industry. Our team has an unparalleled understanding of the underlying technology and the unique blend of legal and business issues arising in contracts. We also offer an innovative approach to advising, litigating, and resolving complex legal issues in the emerging digital assets industry and expanding the potential for successful outcomes in the face of SEC and other regulatory obstacles. This expertise and experience allows us to understand each side’s perspective and better advise our clients, more strategically negotiate contracts, and more easily resolve regulatory issues as they arise.
In today’s current business environment, all companies are technology companies. We represent clients of all sizes as they adapt to the evolving and increasingly complex business landscape, which increasingly relies on technology. We work closely with our clients to advise on optimal sourcing and commercial solutions to meet these critical business needs and provide strategic guidance on the value of strategic relationships and the creation, acquisition, and use of technology.
We take a multidisciplinary approach to the practice and leverage the experience of our intellectual property, financing, tax, employment, accounting, SEC experts, and litigation colleagues to advise clients through all phases of the business lifecycle, including initial research and development, business capitalization, rapid expansion, intellectual property rights licensing, prosecution and litigation, antitrust and marketing compliance, talent acquisition and retention, private and public offerings, financings and mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, divestitures and sales, and SEC legal actions.
We also advise institutional, venture capital, private equity, and individual investors and lenders who invest in, buy, sell, and finance technology and technology-enabled businesses and support the firm’s Mergers & Acquisitions practice with transition service agreements, licensing arrangements, or other technology needs implicated by M&A activity.
