Technology Transactions



A business’s strategic alliances and agreements can mean the difference between being a market participant and a market leader.

Nixon Peabody’s Technology Transactions and Licensing practice combines our business-minded orientation and our deep bench in technology know-how to maximize the value of businesses’ technology-related relationships.

Our Approach

Each year we help clients in a variety of industries execute strategic sourcing and supply chain initiatives involving purchases of a broad spectrum of goods, services and software, including:

  • Joint ventures
  • Business process outsourcing
  • Contract manufacturing
  • Consulting services
  • Manufacturing, distribution and franchise agreements
  • IT services
  • Raw material/Component procurement
  • Licensing
  • Software licensing/Development
  • Technology/Hardware procurement

Our work covers the full lifecycle, from preparing a form agreement library, to training supply chain groups on contracting issues, to negotiating contracts. Our team also has a deep understanding and skillset to manage the privacy and technology issues that can arise in connection with purchasing contracts, particularly those related to computer software and services.

Our clients value our multi-disciplined perspective—from attorneys with backgrounds in computer engineering, life sciences and software to attorneys with decades of experience in corporate, licensing, tax law and intellectual property.
