Transactions with technology at their core require specific, current industry knowledge. The optimal deal structure takes into account the broader strategy behind your business goals, IP portfolio and IT assets, and of course, privacy and data security issues. Our team is versed in tackling these business-critical issues.
A core competency of our lawyers is representing clients in transactions concentrating in technology. Alston & Bird was one of the first firms in the nation to recognize our clients’ needs for a group of intellectual property attorneys, including registered patent lawyers, who focus on transactional matters. In the past fifteen years, this core group of attorneys has gained experience with all types of commercial technology transactions and is in a unique position to support our clients in their needs related to technology-based transactions. The skill set of our attorneys is constantly evolving as new technologies and commercial arrangements evolve. Our clients come from a wide range of industries, such as information technology and computer science, entertainment and media, health care and life sciences, financial services and insurance, logistics and retail.
