You have worked hard to establish your software development or technology company. Now you want to make sure that the intellectual property that you created is protected. It is not enough to trademark or copyright your intellectual property; you must also ensure that your software or technology contracts protect your interests. The very act of permitting clients or others to use your intellectual property can expose your company to claims that you abandoned your intellectual property or have otherwise permitted others to gain rights to that intellectual property. Strong software and technology licenses, as well as assignments, employment agreements, and service agreements are essential to avoiding costly and time-consuming litigation and disputes. I can provide software and technology company agreements in New York or for use elsewhere that clearly define your rights, the rights of others to use your intellectual property and the circumstances under which you can force others to cease and desist further use of your intellectual property. In addition, my experience has taught me that technology clients frequently change the agreed-upon scope of work orders. Perhaps their needs have changed or as the project moves forward they get a better sense of what they need. Regardless of the reason for the change in scope of work, it is essential that you don’t get stuck providing more services than you intended without adequate compensation. I can provide change order amendments and help you implement change order protocols to ensure that you are compensated for all of the work that you do. No two engagements are the same so one size does not fit all. I will provide you with customized agreements that protect you and the financial health of your company. If you are already in a situation where you feel a client or someone else has improperly used your intellectual property, I have over 10 years of experience in litigating intellectual property disputes. Contact me to protect and grow your software development and technology business.
