Yigal Arnon & Co.’s Technology and Transactional IP Group serves numerous international and Israeli clients in a variety of IP transactional fields. Members of our team provide advice concerning complex licensing and commercial transactions involving cutting-edge technology. Their expertise spans a broad cross-section of subjects and industries, including communications, internet/data services, IoT, infrastructure, mobile, semiconductors, homeland security, privacy, data security, e-commerce, information technology, fintech, data storage, software and open source issues, medical devices and life sciences, and cleantech and renewable energy.
We have extensive experience in structuring, negotiating and documenting complex strategic collaboration, joint venture and co-development transactions, IP (patent) licensing transactions, technology transfer arrangements, development and supply agreements, manufacturing, distribution and OEM agreements, and other commercial and corporate finance transactions.
Our Technology and Transactional IP Group also supports the firm’s Corporate Group on IP-related due diligence in M&A and investment transactions. We have provided advice on a number of M&A transactions that involve complicated legal issues and sophisticated and complex technology.
Because Yigal Arnon & Co. represents many early-stage companies, our Technology and Transactional IP Group is extremely familiar with cutting-edge technologies as well as with customary commercial practices and commercialization models. We are experts in drafting and negotiating commercial terms and contracts that protect our clients' intellectual property and other interests, for example, helping many of our early-stage clients bring their products to market, dealing with issues arising in the development of apps and websites, including privacy and data protection issues.
Our group also has extensive experience with issues related to the Israeli R&D law and working with the Israeli Innovation Authority, or IIA (previously the Office of the Chief Scientist). Since many Israeli technology companies often receive IIA funding for development work, this expertise is valued by our clients. Also appreciated is our collaborative team approach—our ability to call on the expertise of the firm’s Tax and Antitrust Practice Groups when advantageous, for example. Likewise, our strong relationships with leading foreign law firms enable us to obtain input on global regulatory, distribution, competition and data protection legal issues where necessary.
