Computer Systems & Software Development
Our team includes attorneys with computer science degrees who worked as programmers, system designers and IT before they were lawyers. This combination of legal skill and tremendous technical skill and experience gives us an undeniable advantage over our competition. We advise a number of software developers throughout the course of the project lifecycle, from the inception and development of the platform to its commercialization.
Routine work for us includes negotiating and drafting licenses for software sale, preparing employment agreements for software developers, negotiating agreements for research and development and preparing traditional IP licenses (e.g., rights to develop/use software covered by a patent). We also have notable depth with respect to open source software and the legal implications surrounding its development and use.
