Technology Transactions and Privacy

Technology touches our everyday lives in more ways than we can think of and it is one of the biggest businesses in the world. It is a matter of no surprise that most of the biggest companies of the world are related to this field and they transact billions of dollars in sales every day.
Technological assets such as Patents, Designs and Copyrights hence hold immense value for the corporations and they are the major source of the value for the corporations. We at Empire understand the value of technology and provide service on the following broad areas:

• Licensing and distribution of Software and Hardware
• OEM and technology protection.
• Consulting and service agreements
• Development
• Outsourcing
• Joint ventures and strategic alliances
• Manufacturing and supply
• Internet and e-commerce
• Marketing, promotion and merchandising agreements
• IP auditing and counselling, copyright, trademark, trade secret and patent licenses
• Privacy Protection

The technology transactions may in many cases involve cross border transactions and compliance with legislations on multiple jurisdictions.

On the other hand, Privacy rights have been found to be closely linked with the Internet based technology sectors as most of these collect user data from the visitors on the internet or the people who purchase their services. The degree of usage of personal data for providing customised advertisements is also another major issue faced by major websites.

For Banking and Financial sector clients who handle large amounts of financial data on behalf of their clients this involves protection of the data from possible security breaches and to minimise possible liability if such breaches do take place.

Our dedicated Technology team at Empire can guide you and your company through all technology related compliance issues which might arise.

No designation has been made by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for a Certificate of Special Competence in this area.
