Technology has become a central part of most businesses today, and the legal issues associated with the development and use of technology have correspondingly become critical. As a result of the expansive use of technology, Wyche’s technology practice also touches on many other areas of legal practice, including mergers and acquisitions, employment, securities, and colleges and universities. This involvement is frequently in the form of assistance with diligence matters as well as in drafting key agreement provisions related to the ownership or assignment of critical technology.

In addition to support of other practice areas, our technology attorneys work directly with clients that are either vendors or customers of technology products and services. Typical transactions include software development agreements, web site development and hosting agreements, ASP arrangements, establishment of e-commerce sites, licensing of technology from research universities, and outsourcing.

Examples of recent Wyche engagements include:
