We provide our clients with practical, cost-effective representation throughout the life cycle of a business. From formation of the company, through financings and growth, to mergers, acquisitions, and securities offerings, our Business Group attorneys combine corporate, securities, and intellectual property legal expertise with a practical understanding of a technology company's business needs. We are frequently called upon to complement a client's management team by participating in strategic planning discussions, often at the senior-management and director levels. HCMP's team approach gives our clients the flexibility to call on a number of our attorneys who are not only familiar with the client's products, technology, and business model, but who also understand the strategic and tactical considerations of both management and the board of directors.
While we strive to assist our clients in managing their risks and minimizing disputes, they sometimes become involved in disputes requiring litigation or alternative dispute resolution. For such circumstances, our Litigation Group has extensive expertise involving all aspects of business and technology.
Our work in the technology industry includes representing software developers, electronic commerce companies (both business-to-consumer and business-to-business), electronic publishers, server companies, telecommunications companies, and others. We also assist "non-tech" companies with their technology needs. Our capabilities and expertise include:
Mergers & Acquisitions
Employment and Employee Benefits
Strategic Alliances and Corporate Partnering
