Our technology/IT specialists offer comprehensive advice on start-ups and new joint ventures, with experience with the sale of large technology businesses that have been sold for tens of millions. We also regularly advise on IT contracts such as licenses and software development agreements.
In this sector we have acted for decades for significant Tech businesses, including Tait Communications. Our Consultant Peter van Rij was Chairman of Tait Limited for many years and remains on the Board of Directors. Our clients range from those involved in start-up software businesses to those with new inventions and technologies that are still at the research stage. Some of our clients have been involved in different lightning labs and accelerators around the country and we have experience reviewing the associated documentation that comes with those programs.
In the educational sector we act for Digital Future Aoteroa and Partner Kris Morrison is a Board Member.
We have also recently started our own IT start-up “Active Associate” working with software developers on a solution that we think can be used in the legal industry. This process has meant we have had to directly face, ourselves, many of the curly issues that confront early stage IT companies and funding rounds and issues associated with them.
We have experience in all aspects of technology/IT law including
- Joint ventures
- Terms of Trade
- Software Licensing
- Technology contracts
