Technology & Intellectual Property Transactions

Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A.’s Technology & Intellectual Property Transactions group has significant experience with a variety of transactions involving many types of technology. Transactions involving the development, use, sale, and acquisition of technology require a specific understanding of the intellectual property (IP) rights underlying the technology, and our lawyers have an acute understanding of patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret law.

We have structured and negotiated technology transactions in a variety of industries involving a wide range of technologies, including computer hardware, semiconductor chips, medical devices, biotechnology, cloud computing, green technology, nanotechnology, data storage, banking, pharmaceutical, dietary supplement, x-ray imaging and tomography, mobile technology, and e-commerce.

We work closely with our clients to develop strategic, comprehensive IP plans to maximize the value of our clients’ IP assets. We help early-stage and growth-orientated technology owners and developers maximize the value of their IP assets through a wide range of transactions that help increase their capital while protecting their ownership rights, including the following:

  • Licenses and technology transfers
  • Joint ventures and technology alliances
  • Application service provider and software as a service agreements
  • Sales, distribution and reseller agreements
  • Supply chain management and outsourcing agreements
  • Open source software license review
  • Software development and maintenance agreements
  • Data security
  • Information and data transfer

The Technology & IP Transactions group works in close collaboration with the other practice groups within Winthrop & Weinstine. We field a team of attorneys who understand the transaction and the relevant technology, as well as the client’s broader business and strategy. The attorneys in our Technology & IP Transactions group draw on experience from our other practice groups in areas such as corporate law and securities, tax, bankruptcy, and litigation to assist on particular issues. Our team based approach provides the flexibility necessary to deploy the right resources for each transaction in an efficient and effective manner.
