Technology in all its permutations has emerged to the forefront in virtually every business environment, becoming integral to most business strategies and transactions.
To navigate through this territory requires experienced professionals having a firm understanding of the business needs and the legal skills to execute successful strategies that technology transactions demand.
At SGK, we have developed deep and wide experience and vision to guide our clients in this crucial area. Our approach is to partner with our clients to achieve the best overall result from a practical, business-oriented perspective. We bring added value to a transaction based on our deep understanding of not only the legal issues, but also the technological and business issues.
We represent a wide array of clients in connection with technology and IP matters including software and information technology licensing and procurement, technology outsourcing arrangements, and tech development, collaboration, joint-venture, and distribution deals. We also bring a wholistic approach to technology issues that arise in connection with the more traditional business transactions such as mergers and acquisitions and business asset sales and purchases.
SGK brings a multi-disciplinary approach within the firm, drawing upon our deep experience in corporate services, cyber security, financial services, tax services, litigation, employee benefits and compensation, fund formation and general business law. In this regard, SGK represents emerging companies, entrepreneurs, business owners and investors, advising on equity structures, intellectual property rights, and other issues vital to their success. We also represent traditional businesses that rely upon technology to grow and thrive in the marketplace, including financial institutions, manufacturers and other established businesses.
