  • Employees and independent contractors
  • Stock option plans
  • Intellectual property matters
  • Commercial leases
  • Product and technology licensing

We build on the strength of our firm’s other practice areas such as real estate, corporate and commercial, and intellectual property law to provide creative solutions to answer our clients’ questions.
