Our Technology Transactions Practice Group is dedicated to serving the needs of innovative technology companies, and to structuring, negotiating and closing commercial transactions driven by technology.  We help both established and emerging technology sector clients use their technology to design, develop, manufacture, market and sell products and services, as well as to create and leverage technology platforms across a wide range of industries.

PLG’s Technology Transactions attorneys regularly handle complex matters involving intellectual property and sophisticated technologies.   Our Technology Transactions attorneys are business people in addition to being lawyers:  our members have founded and sold technology businesses,  managed corporate licensing departments and handled corporate business development. 

We have business experience in the industries we serve.   We understand our clients’ business models, and we use this knowledge to structure transactions to help our clients achieve their goals.  Our Technology Transactions team is highly multi-disciplinary, and includes attorneys with expertise in technology licensing, patents and intellectual property, business law, mergers and acquisitions, tax and regulatory law.   We are also able to call on attorneys within the firm with many other areas of expertise (such as Government Contracts, International, and Privacy & Data Security) if a particular transaction requires it.

  • Patent, technology, software, content and trademark licenses
