Software Licensing & Services Law

Our software attorneys understand the IP & business aspects of software disputes.

Unlike most intellectual property litigators, our software attorneys have drafted and negotiated sophisticated software licensing and software copyright agreements. Our attorneys therefore understand the business and financial, as well as the legal, dimensions of our clients’ software matters. Software lawsuits and intellectual property litigation can be time-consuming and expensive, and may not justify the loss of a customer or valuable business opportunity. Our attorneys’ mission is to resolve your software licensing and software copyright matters as quickly and efficiently as possible, so you stay focused on growing your software business.

Our attorneys’ software expertise extends to software consulting and other software-related services matters. We represent consultants, software licensors and customers in ERP implementation, maintenance and support, and software consulting disputes. We also advocate for hosted services/SaaS providers and end-users in performance, uptime, data loss and other service-level agreement litigation. We have particular experience in software and mobile app development litigation, and in other cases concerning the ownership and use of proprietary software. Our breach of contract experience helps us resolve our clients’ software-related services matters more quickly, and at a lower cost, than other software intellectual property lawyers.

As examples, our attorneys have successfully handled the following types of software licensing and software-related services matters:
