law firms and relevant in-house legal experience at technology companies.

contracts to closure quickly and efficiently.
Because of this, we are able to deliver our services in
significantly less time than other law firms. Moreover, we understand our
clients' businesses, and we recognize that our role is to facilitate our
clients' business objectives, not to create legal obstacles. We know when to
raise issues in contracts and, more importantly, when not to do so. Companies

of expertise and develop long-term partnerships with our clients.
