Hardware, Software, IT and Services
We assist with hundreds of agreements each year, guiding clients in nearly every technological field through the transactions that allow them to lead and innovate.
Our clients in the ever-changing and fiercely competitive hardware, software, IT and services depend on us to strategize and negotiate transactions that take advantage of opportunities now while protecting their innovations and shoring up strong industry relationships for the future. We structure, negotiate and draft all types of licensing, distribution, product development, joint venture and strategic alliance agreements for these clients, often drawing on the deep experience of WilmerHale's regulatory, intellectual property, business and tax lawyers. Our attorneys keep a close watch on Internet-related legislative and regulatory developments in the United States, the European Union and elsewhere, and leverage our up-to-the-minute knowledge to advise clients in areas such as data privacy and security, copyright infringement, and export restrictions.
