In today’s digital world, often the most sensitive and protected kinds of intellectual property come in the form of proprietary technology. And, in cases of a sale or a purchase, successful transfer of these assets is of paramount importance.
Loeb & Loeb helps clients maximize the value of technology acquisitions, whether in the context of mergers, corporate partnerships, purchases of technology assets, or other strategic corporate or commercial transactions.
We are well-versed in the business, regulatory and commercial issues inherent in these transactions – from both the buy and sell sides. Loeb lawyers have facilitated hundreds of transactions across a wide variety of technologies and industries – pharmaceuticals, life sciences, health care, semiconductor, financial services and consumer credit, to name a few – and at all stages of product development. We’ve structured cross-licenses for the use of technology post transaction and negotiated the transfer of trade secrets.
Detail-focused and business-savvy, we don’t just speak the language of the deal. With degrees in engineering and the sciences, and experience in patent prosecution and litigation, our Technology Transfer team is fluent in the underlying technology, how it drives the structure and the value of the transaction, and how it impacts diligence and risk.
Our patent practitioners work as part of an integrated deal team with lawyers from our Corporate practice, and often alongside lawyers and professional from disciplines across the firm, including intellectual property, regulatory, reimbursement, tax, antitrust and litigation. We’re also called upon to assist on complex technology transfer issues in bankruptcies, restructurings, workouts and other distressed situations.
