Our IP & Tech Transactions team has negotiated over a hundred transactions to develop, purchase, use, and monetize technologies and intellectual property assets for domestic and foreign companies of all sizes.
Our attorneys have earned a reputation as practical and strategic deal closers. We assist our clients in identifying sources of leverage and choosing the right battles. We educate our clients on key deal terms, including license scope, warranties, intellectual property infringement indemnities, exclusivity, milestones, non-competes, support services, statements of work, and limitation on liability, so they can make better strategic and tactical decisions.
We built our IP & Tech Transaction team by inviting a former inhouse commercial attorney with both startup and global public company experience to join Mei & Mark’s renowned intellectual property team. For example, our commercial attorney negotiated SAAS agreements with large financial institutions on behalf of a fintech startup. He also negotiated agreements with Airbus on behalf of global manufacturer Brady Corporation (NYSE) to become one of two Airbus suppliers of radio frequency identification (RFID) labels and related software for global component management.
IP & Tech Transactions include:
- Joint venture and strategic alliance relationships
- SAAS/software agreements
- Inbound and outbound technology and patent licenses
- Development agreements
- Media content agreements
- Distribution and reseller agreements
- Manufacturing and supply agreements
- End-user licenses
Our flexible fee structure, such as fixed fees for certain transactions, makes our IP & Tech Transactions Practice accessible to small and medium-sized businesses.
