Direct, Cost-Effective Solutions

Technology Law

Technology is an integral part of virtually every business today. Our clients include businesses that use technology in their daily operations, as well as information technology companies such as software developers, e-commerce companies, and companies that provide software as a service (SAAS).

Staub Anderson assists technology companies, starting from initial business organization and including service of ongoing legal needs as the companies grow and develop.

For clients acquiring technology for their business, we negotiate agreements involving hardware purchase and leasing; software and other intellectual property licensing, customization and maintenance; system integration; outsourcing arrangements; and related services. We encourage clients to discuss with us early on the most prudent and cost effective ways to address their technology law needs.

Internet Presence

For many clients, their Internet presence is one of the most important parts of their business. On the front end, at the creation stage, we negotiate web development contracts. We prepare terms of use, privacy policies to comply with state laws and other agreements governing the use of the web site and online databases. Since many of our clients have operations in other parts of the world, we work to comply with the rules of various jurisdiction including the EU directives like General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”). We also help negotiate and structure agreements with content providers and affiliates.

Intellectual Property Protection

In the area of protection and transfer of technology, we apply for and obtain trademarks and copyrights and safeguard trade secrecy through confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements. We also prepare licensing documents and other instruments for the protection of a client’s intellectual property against unauthorized use.
