High-Tech Companies

The increasing speed of scientific and technological progress is closely linked to the ever faster international exchange of all kinds of information. Due to the evolution of new technologies it is not only necessary to refine the existing technology law, that encloses the field of intellectual property protection as well as the law of licence and research and development contracts. At least of the same importance is the development of an adequate shareholder structure that allows considering the often disparate interests of the founders adequately.

The implementation of new scientific and technological findings into successful ventures represents special challenges to the legal advisers. This is especially true in the fields of warranty and product liability. We support your company in negotiations with the aim to minimize legal risks with respect to liability and warranty or to hedge your risks against your suppliers. In addition we are able to represent you – if necessary in court – in the defence or enforcement of all kinds of liability claims. Our wealth of experience especially in cases of serial damages certainly is a strong advantage for our clients.

We accompany founders and investors in the design of corporate and investment contracts, in negotiating with private or institutional investors or in the shaping of an exit agreement. We advise your company in the foundation, the implementation of financing rounds, in negotiations on cooperation or licence projects as well as in the field of research and development contracts.

Our clients include companies of varying size from the industries of electronics, automotive, medical technology, biotechnology and IT-service providers.
