Over the past few decades, it has become increasingly important for companies to protect their intellectual property rights, as well as have a thorough understanding of specialized technology and international distribution. The firm focuses on all things technology, including both transactional and trial matters, and provides comprehensive representation and consulting to minimize risk, protect valuable tangible and intangible assets, and help to avoid monetary loss.
There are two main areas of technology litigation, the first of which is information technology, which concerns how electronic information is collected, stored, and used in an increasingly global marketplace. The firm brings both legal and technology skills together to help you navigate issues such as cyber security, data privacy, software licenses, technology contracts, data retention policy, and information governance policies.
The other main part of technology litigation is intellectual property, a term which refers to creations of the mind and the rights of individuals or organizations to use it. A technology related intellectual property dispute may have to do with trade secrets, copyrighted computer programs, industrial plans or designs, and trademarks. Special recipes and processes are just as much trade secrets and protectable as patents, copyright, and trademarks.
The firm has years of experience as business advisor and trial counsel in Internet, IoT, technology development, eCommerce, licensing, intellectual property, and in first-line negotiations of complex master services and service level agreements, as well as in finance and venture capital agreements. Mr. Kar directly negotiated, drafted, and devised strategies in banking, processors and merchant services, as well as product and clothing manufacturing, sales, and projects.
