Maximizing Technology Opportunities

The rapid development of new technologies impacts every business. Because we recognize that technology is critical to our clients’ businesses, our attorneys are up to date on current and emerging technologies. We have assisted a wide range of clients with software and technology issues, from startups and emerging companies to established multinational corporations, and jealously guard our clients’ intellectual property assets and business value in software and technology. 

Our attorneys are experienced in a variety of Cloud, software, Internet, and other technology issues including:

  • Software and mobile application development arrangements
  • Licensing and technology transfers
  • Software as a Service, Platform as a Service, and other Cloud services agreements
  • Software maintenance and support agreements
  • Technology-related acquisitions and divestitures
  • Open-source license agreements
  • Master services, consulting, and professional services agreements
  • NDAs, confidentiality, and inventions assignment agreements
  • Legal ramifications of emerging technologies on a company’s business model

At Moye White, our team consults on regulatory and disclosure issues, including privacy and security. We also counsel clients regarding the creation and implementation of timely, relevant IT governance policies and procedures to protect their companies and proprietary IT assets.

Safeguarding Your Intellectual Property Assets

Today many pieces of your business’ intellectual property portfolio relate to technology in one way or another. Our intellectual property lawyers have a thorough understanding of trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and the process of registering, licensing, and protecting them. The overlap between our Intellectual Property and Software & Technology teams provides you with the assurance that your business is in capable hands, whether you’re looking to register new intellectual property or need to defend your intellectual property against infringement. 

Thorough Litigation Strategies

Software and other technology infringement and piracy occurs more often than most think. If your company discovers it has inadvertently copied or reproduced another’s software or technology intellectual property, it is essential to act quickly with the help of a knowledgeable attorney. In addition, we can protect your company against possible infringement by others.

Although these infringements do not always end up in court, serious legal action may need to be taken. If litigation is unavoidable, our litigators bring to bear experience acquired through prosecuting and defending technology cases, including copyright, trademark, trade secret, antitrust, and breach of contract claims.

We Evolve with Your Technology

The technology industry is constantly growing and improving, making the lives of consumers easier and doing business more efficient. The industry has now approached an era where this year’s technology outshines last year’s technology, and last year’s technology outshines the technology from the year before. With such accelerated evolution comes the necessity of staying knowledgeable with the innovations our clients utilize, as well as their consumers, suppliers, and distributors. Even governments often struggle to implement effective laws to protect consumers and ensure data is being used legally and ethically. It is important to find a flexible team that grows and adapts their knowledge of the technology with the laws that structure them.

Whether you’re looking to register new intellectual property or require guidance drafting a development agreement, Moye White’s Software and Technology Group can help. With offices in Denver, Atlanta, and Basalt, we can provide you with the necessary representation or defense, regardless of your location.
