Technology Associations

Advising technology associations on legal matters is a highly specialized type of legal representation. Our attorneys have deep and sophisticated experience providing these legal services to technology associations through their entire life cycle. We have helped form associations, including drafting Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, Intellectual Property Rights Polices and various types of member agreements, and provided guidance on trademark usage and compliance policies. We frequently have been retained to provide legal guidance when technology associations agree to combine, share technology or work toward common goals.
