Commercial and Technology

Our Commercial and Technology Practice is focused on assisting clients to maximize value and minimize risk stemming from their commercial technology arrangements.

The efficient and forward-looking utilization of technology resources is crucial to the financial success of businesses in almost all industries today. WBK attorneys focus on understanding our clients’ objectives in each of their commercial technology transactions, while using our experience with, and insight into, the technology sector and applicable regulatory frameworks to achieve these results. We represent clients of all sizes in commercial transactions, including large national and international enterprises as well as small and local companies.

On the vendor/supplier side, we assist clients to draft and negotiate customer agreements—from comprehensive and customized enterprise-level commercial arrangements, such as outsourcing, technology development, and network management agreements, to standard retail terms and conditions, terms of use, end-user license agreements, and privacy policies. We also assist clients on the customer-side of commercial transactions to achieve optimal outcomes and mitigate risks when negotiating arrangements with their technology vendors. In addition to a full scope of telecommunications, media, and energy commercial transactions that complement the Firm’s regulatory practices, we also regularly advise clients regarding professional services arrangements, software and technology licensing, outsourcing back-office administrative functions, technology development and manufacturing agreements, data hosting and cloud computing arrangements, and technology maintenance and support agreements, among many others.
