R | McHale Law’s Technology Law practice leverages our considerable business instinct, technical insight and legal experience to structure, negotiate and consummate licenses and other technology-related agreements. As technology and the growing importance of intellectual property continue to advance, licensing and other forms of technology transactions play an increasingly vital role in many clients’ business strategies. We partner with our clients during all stages of their growth to support the broadest strategic commercialization of their intellectual property and technology assets.

We regularly advise clients across a broad spectrum of industries — including software, information technology, biotechnology, Internet and e-commerce — in the protection, registration, and/or commercial exploitation of their patents, technical know-how, trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights and other forms of intellectual property.
