Technology

Effective legal representation for technology-related matters requires an understanding of the underlying technology, the business problems, and the relevant corporate, commercial and intellectual property legal issues. All too often lawyers who deal with these transactions do not have the background and experience to best serve their clients’ needs. Halket Weitz, on the other hand, provides what technology-based companies require: counsel with outstanding skill in the legal areas of concern for these companies, broad business experience and the required level of understanding of science and technology.

Halket Weitz has represented a wide range of technology-based businesses in industries such as computers, e-commerce, electronics, telecommunications, media, medical equipment and biotechnology. It has also represented venture capital and other investors in early stage companies and universities and entrepreneurs. Work for these clients has been both domestic and international and includes the areas of corporate organization, commercial transactions, strategic planning, financing, and intellectual property transactions and disputes. Lawyers at Halket Weitz have had previous experience in house as general counsel of technology driven companies, and large-firm experience as a partner in charge of the firm’s commercial technology practice. They teach an advanced class in law school on business planning for emerging technology companies and have been and continue to be active on various bar association and science and technology-related committees.
