Partnering with clients to serve their needs in all aspects of technology, licensing and intellectual property transactions


Parsons Behle & Latimer attorneys and support staff in the Technology, Licensing and Intellectual Property Transactions team have extensive experience and expertise in drafting, negotiating, finalizing and advising on contracts, transactions and arrangements required by clients in a wide variety of technology and market sectors.

The key legal driver for businesses operating in the technology space today is intellectual property. Patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets are the modern tools used to achieve business success. This intellectual property is often the most valuable asset of an enterprise. Inventing, developing, acquiring and protecting these assets are of critical importance. Transactions and contractual arrangements involving these assets are equally critical for businesses looking to utilize the best technology, partner with leaders in the industry and interface with customers.

Whether a business operates in the computer, software, hardware, mobile device, semiconductor, telecommunications, IT, web services, e-commerce, financial services, healthcare management or other market sector, Parsons' Technology, Licensing and Intellectual Property Transactions team is uniquely qualified and positioned to provide clients with the very best legal services and advice needed for all forms of transactions and arrangements involving technology and intellectual property. Quite simply, Parsons has the attorneys, support staff, resources, experience and expertise clients require to drive success with your technology, licensing, and intellectual property transactional needs, including those involving:
