  • Hardware purchase, sale, lease and maintenance agreements
  • Internet service provider agreements
  • Application service provider (ASP) agreements

Attorneys providing e-business services work closely with the firm's business and finance practice, representing companies in complex transactions involving intellectual property and sophisticated technology, including high technology financings and mergers and acquisitions. We also work in close cooperation with members of other practice areas throughout the firm, especially where clients operating in on-line environments encounter problems that require particular experience in tax law, securities law, antitrust, labor law, litigation, interstate and international issues, and general corporate matters.
