To be effective in the technology sector, lawyers need an understanding of the technologies in question and experience in a wide range of commercial issues. Hogan Lovells’ international team of technology lawyers offers clients exactly that winning combination of technical knowledge and industry experience. Many of our team members come from a background in infrastructure and project finance; intellectual property; corporate law; or antitrust and competition law.
We advise a wide range of companies — from early-stage start-ups to some of the world's largest businesses — on technology contracts, transactions, and disputes.
We are well versed in the technology aspects of transactions of all kinds, including outsourcing projects, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, and strategic alliances. We have extensive experience on commercial technology issues, including patents, licensing, and encryption, and on regulatory matters such as data protection and information management.
Our global dispute resolution practice has built up considerable experience in resolving technology disputes through litigation or arbitration. When traditional means of dispute resolution are not appropriate, we act for clients in mediation or other alternative dispute resolution processes, bringing a mastery of technical detail to bear in order to resolve even the most complex of disputes.
