Technology The IT Factor
Kilpatrick Townsend’s technology clients range from individual mavericks to global companies. What they have in common are powerful ideas with the potential to change the way we live and work. For more than a century, we have been a pioneer in the field and continue to offer technology clients proactive, business-oriented counsel and cutting-edge legal solutions. Our attorneys provide counsel on enhancing and evolving businesses through financing, joint ventures, strategic alliances, and sales and acquisitions. We also ably represent technology clients in litigation and patent disputes.
Our technology and software clients include developers and licensors, application service providers, hardware manufacturers, telecommunications firms, cable operators, outsourcing service providers, biotech and life science companies, and digital marketplaces. We also represent numerous venture capital funds, private equity funds, and other financing sources and counsel global consulting firms and other companies supporting the technology sector.
Many of Kilpatrick Townsend’s technology attorneys have extensive legal and technical experience in computer science, software development, and engineering disciplines, and some team members have served as patent examiners at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. In addition to assisting clients with all aspects of patent portfolio strategy, management, and litigation, our team has experience in claims of unfair competition and deceptive trade practices, software disputes, litigation arising from technology licensing agreements, and claims under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
