Technology and Telecommunications
Bush Ross attorneys provide legal representation to a variety of participants in the technology industry. In today’s business world, all businesses are, to some extent, a part of the technology industry. Whether you are an end user, involved in research and development, bring technology products to the market or take technology as collateral, your business involves technology. At Bush Ross, we have the expertise necessary to recognize key technology issues and can protect your interests in addressing them.
Specifically, we have worked with clients that build and develop new technology and the platforms to run those new developments. We have worked with a developer of voice over IP technology, numerous online retailers, file sharing hosting sites, smart phone application designers and the developer of a new technology in the global positioning arena, to build and develop and protect their businesses through formation, acquiring financing, offering securities, marketing and development agreements and licensing their technology to third parties. We have also assisted large telecommunication providers in establishing and maintaining their business and contracts.
Our telecommunication experience includes drafting and reviewing lease and license agreements relating to cell and radio towers and negotiating license agreements for telecommunication training materials. We have represented several online periodicals and trade groups in shareholder disputes, asset acquisitions and intellectual property matters.
In disputed matters, our lawyers have represented a major wireless carrier in class action litigation involving alleged breach of warranty, false advertising and consumer fraud regarding the quality and continuity of service, a government investigation on the same subject, a trade secret misappropriation case brought by another major wireless carrier, and various other commercial and consumer matters including federal court garnishment litigation seeking to collect wrongful death judgments against terrorist states (Cuba and Iran) under the federal Terrorism Risk Insurance Act.
We also recognize and appreciate that our technology and telecommunication clients have general business needs that must be addressed including succession planning, corporate governance and commercial lending. Just as we can work with our general corporate clients to address their technology needs, so can we assist our technology and telecommunication clients in addressing these general corporate needs.
