Technology Contract Litigation
Successful resolution of technology related disputes requires lawyers who understand technology. Our deep understanding of a wide range of technologies enables us to serve clients in commercial disputes in a variety of industries, including banking, consumer products, energy, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, software, information technology, transportation, and utilities.

Using that approach, we have compiled a track record of achieving favorable outcomes for our clients through settlement or by verdict, in federal and state courts, foreign jurisdictions and before arbitration panels.
