At Conway we regularly advise clients involved in cross-border licensing or the outright sale of technology. Licensing technology can be a complicated affair and the attorneys at Conway are experienced in drafting precise, tightly worded and legally sound contracts on behalf of our clients. As much of the contracting work is done in the English language, our combined team of Dutch and American trained lawyers is well suited to help clients prepare cross-border sales and licensing agreements. Our lawyers are well aware of the legal and regulatory environment governing these contracts. Because of the fact we act as counsel on behalf of clients involved in technology disputes, we know what kind of pitfalls can occur.
