Many of our lawyers have prior in-house experience, which gives us an understanding of the need for a “proportionate response” to clients’ legal needs. We understand that, while companies need to be protected from and aware of risks, they also need to be given realistic options and solutions to move their business forward. We value our role as trusted advisor to management and strive to provide practical advice that is responsive to our clients’ business needs.
Our clients include suppliers and customers of technology and technology-enabled products and services, including equipment manufacturers, software developers, service providers, and technology vendors. We also represent individual inventors, developers, and consultants. Our clients operate in diverse industries, including financial services, consumer products, food and beverage, health care, medical devices, Internet and social media, branding and advertising, telecommunications, insurance, pharmaceuticals, education, alternative energy, transportation, computer hardware, physical security, and manufacturing.
We assist our clients through the entire life cycle of a deal, including pre-bid planning, request for proposal strategies and response review, developing revenue models, deal structuring, contract drafting, negotiating agreements, post-contract administration, project management, risk avoidance, and, when necessary, workouts and dispute resolution. For cross-border transactions, we have access to a network of international resources to address country-specific issues.
Whether working with a local start-up or assisting global clients, we can readily draw upon the experience of Robinson & Cole attorneys in the areas of employment and benefits, tax, intellectual property, corporate, real estate, private wealth planning, and dispute resolution matters to deliver comprehensive, integrated advice for each transaction.
We advise clients in the following areas:
