Technology and Licensing

“We’ll take the time to understand each client’s complex technology and ever-evolving business model. And, when it comes to transactions, we understand that our clients want us to facilitate rather than frustrate transactions.”

We advise clients on commercial, legal and regulatory issues in the software, hardware, information technology, media and e-commerce industries. At Smutylo Law+, because we understand and embrace technology, we respond to seemingly complex situations with simple and practical advice and solutions that keep our clients’ bottom line in mind.  And, we understand and speak legalese and tech-speak!

Our clients include hardware manufacturers, software vendors, enterprise software purchasers, application developers and web service companies of all types and sizes.  Our transaction experience ranges from development, licensing and service agreements to outright technology purchases.   When it comes to technology and licensing law, we have the in-house legal expertise typically only found within the technology departments of large Silicon Valley law firms.
