Technology Transactions

Symbus’ technology transactions attorneys are routinely called upon to assist clients with business transactions involving technology.  This may take the form of providing strategic counseling, structuring transactions, drafting and/or negotiating agreements.  We also have strong capabilities in connection with the purchasing, licensing, sale, development, protection, enforcement, and commercialization of intellectual property and technology. We advise companies in almost all technology sectors with a particular focus on Internet, e-commerce, software, hardware, financial services, telecommunications, gaming, social media, software, semiconductor, information technology, and content.

Many of our attorneys have in-house experience and/or have served in business capacity which allows us to appreciate the realities of the “art of the deal”.  We have a deep appreciation for various external factors impacting deals including financial and timing constraints, political ramifications, and strategic implications to business models.  We work within these bounds with the goal of achieving the best overall results for our clients at all times.
