The Internet, with its instantaneous and worldwide distribution of digital material, adds a layer of complexity to intellectual property protection. With a nuanced understanding of these complexities, Olshan IP lawyers help clients manage their IP, data, technology and brands in the digital world, guiding them through the ever-changing technological landscape and helping them leverage opportunities and avoid risks.

Doing Deals in the Digital World

Our IP lawyers regularly negotiate agreements, handle transactions and litigate cases involving technology and digital content. We have represented myriad companies ranging from insurance and financial institutions to advertising agencies to technology companies to major pharmaceutical,  cosmetics and fashion companies in negotiating web development, design and hosting agreements, software development and license agreements, software-as-a-service (SaaS) agreements, application service provider agreements, and online marketing agreements.

Monetizing Opportunities and Minimizing Risks

As more data is collected, stored and exchanged electronically, we help our clients assess new monetization opportunities to gain a competitive edge, as well as help them manage risks associated with cybersecurity, data protection and customer privacy.
