Practice Area Definition
Technology lawyers focus on the development and finance of technology-based businesses. Technology law involves working with investors, start-up or later stage enterprises, venture capital investors, technology lenders and technology-oriented investment dealers in such matters as private and public financings; stockholder and employment matters; strategic alliances, partnerships and joint ventures; stock exchange listings; and mergers and acquisitions. This often necessitates working closely over a long period with a technology business at all stages, from initial business and financial start-up plans to an IPO and beyond to such high-end matters as mergers and acquisitions or corporate governance.
Please note that the Directory has separate Sections for COMPUTER & IT LAW, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY and BIOTECHNOLOGY.
