Gray Reed’s technology industry group combines technical knowledge, business acumen and industry experience to assist clients. Our attorneys advise clients from a variety of industries, including telecommunications, tech manufacturing, information technology, digital media, e-commerce, privacy, content licensing and medical technology. As a full-service law firm, we draw on the expertise of attorneys from our intellectual property, corporate, commercial litigation, tax and other practice areas to assist our technology clients.
Our clients range from entrepreneurs and emerging companies to international corporations. We handle a variety of matters, including cybersecurity and privacy, software licensing and audits, compliance, technology transactions, copyrights and trademarks, commercial disputes and patent litigation. Our goal is to provide clients with strategic, creative solutions that protect their interests and minimize their risks.
The firm’s IP attorneys are skilled at effectively leveraging patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret-related assets to build, monetize, and protect client intellectual property portfolios. They have significant experience in many popular IP venues, including the Eastern District of Texas, Federal Circuit, and International Trade Commission, representing parties alleged to have infringed a patent, trademark or other intellectual property right of another, and pursuing claims and remedies for those whose rights have been infringed. Our IP attorneys litigate patents covering a wide range of technologies, including telecommunications, oil and gas, and software. The team stays on top of current trends in technology and the law, providing advice to clients on issues such as FRAND licensing and SSO compliance. Often teaming with other Gray Reed attorneys, our IP team frequently provides merger and acquisition related due diligence and freedom-to-operate analysis.
The commercial litigation department is one of the firm’s largest and has a strong presence in both offices. Our trial attorneys provide complete state and federal trial and appellate representation, arbitration, mediation and alternative dispute resolution services to our clients in the technology industry.
Our corporate law group assists technology clients with virtually every aspect of their business—from formation through restructuring. They advise clients on choosing the proper business organization, are involved with transactions concerning the structuring of ownership and management rights, and have experience representing companies in all stages on matters related to structuring, negotiating and closing all forms of financing.
Gray Reed’s technology practice has unique expertise relating to Internet media communications, online defamation, privacy, marketing and promotion compliance, domain name disputes, policy and governmental compliance, and software licensing and audits.
