Technology Transactions

The development, management and transfer of information technology (“IT”) is an integral part of virtually every business. And, it is a core part of our business. For more than 15 years, principal Jeremy Gibson has specialized in IT and similar matters.

For instance, he previously served as a senior attorney at BearingPoint, the former technology consulting arm of KPMG, where he was responsible for significant IT procurements and strategic partner matters with IBM and SAP. Before that he helped to form and direct the intellectual property & technology group at his previous law firm.

Since launching his own practice, complex IT and other technology transactions has been the leading edge of the firm. Jeremy Gibson has worked with very large companies, such as Accenture, Discover Financial, Getty Images, Ingersoll Rand and Siemens, on major projects. In addition, the firm has represented many small and start-up technology businesses, including a leading enterprise search implementation firm, an NFC (near field communication) solutions consultancy, a video game developer and a solar-powered lighting company.
