We are proud to assist companies of all sizes with focused Information Technology (I.T.), Internet/Data Security/Privacy, Software Licensing and Cloud Computing transactional legal services and Trademark and Copyright protection

Our clients range from Fortune 500 companies and market leaders to start-ups.

Do I.T. Right: Our I.T. clients are vendors and users, licensors and licensees. With over 25 years experience drafting and negotiating I.T. contracts, we know the issues, the potential roadblocks, the parties' usual positions, what's nonsense and what's not, and how to reach agreement. We've likely seen it before and have successfully dealt with it.

Protecting Your Brand: Our Trademark clients benefit from our years of experience in having filed over 200 trademark applications in the USPTO for U.S. protection and in the World Intellectual Property Office for protection outside the U.S.

We help our clients get where they want to be. SM
