Technology and media
DLA Piper’s technology and sourcing practice concentrates on complex transactions and multi-party, high-value project work, frequently spanning multiple jurisdictions.
We focus on the development, protection, exploitation and use of technology-related assets through various stages of a company’s growth, as well as the sourcing of strategic assets and services for use in a company’s operations.
Our teams have deep industry sector experience that allows us to provide valuable practical advice and innovative solutions over and above our first-rate base of technical know-how. In addition, we also provide specialist advice to the telecommunications sector, including commercial, transactional and regulatory aspects.
Our media practice counts many of the world’s largest high-profile entertainment and new-media companies, sports bodies and major financial institutions as clients. In an increasingly convergent world where content intertwines with technology, we are able to merge the circles by providing sound commercial advice and dispute resolution services based on extensive experience in the sector.
We provide legal advice covering many areas, including telecommunications, patents, trademark, copyright, intellectual property, film financing, mergers and acquisitions, anti-counterfeiting, e-business, sports litigation and privacy.
