Maschoff Brennan’s data and technology transactions team helps clients negotiate the maze of legal and commercial issues that arise in connection with the acquisition, development, adoption, product commercialization, and licensing of new technologies and intellectual property assets in a wide range of industries. 

Clients turn to us for focused guidance on the IP, technology, privacy, and data security related aspects of their business transactions — from research and development of new technologies, asset commercialization, complex carve-outs, to the everyday reality of doing business in a global and networked world.  We advise clients on their most important technology and IP-related contracts, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, joint development agreements, strategic alliances, customer agreements, and website policies and terms of service. We also assist our clients to help them to develop secure and compliant platforms, websites, ecommerce platforms, and products, and assist clients in realizing the maximum value of their data and IP assets.

Our team provides strategic guidance and representation to the world’s leading corporations and consumer brands, financial institutions, platforms, and emerging technology companies on the full range of transactions and the regulation of technology and data.  Our lawyers help companies negotiate their key software and information technology licensing and procurement, patent licensing and monetization, collaboration, outsourcing and cloud agreements, and provide practical and business-focused legal advice on important development and distribution deals across industries and market sectors. We help clients develop strategies to protect and make maximum use of technology and data against the backdrop of an ever-evolving internet and increasingly complex global regulations.

Our support for technology transactions and data privacy and security continues beyond the initial transaction.  We advise our clients on successfully managing long-term relationships with suppliers, ensure compliance with U.S. and international data privacy, consumer protection, trade, and products liability requirements and laws, implementing sustainable governance models, and resolving disputes.  Our lawyers focus on offering practical advice that enables our clients to balance compliance to optimize business relationships with customers and consumers going forward and achieve value and cost savings.
