OVERVIEW & EXPERTISE

 

​Technology changes everything. Not only is it integral to the operation of every company and market, but it is also a universal catalyst, changing the nature of products and services and even entire markets as it evolves, emerging and adapting unpredictably and with astonishing speed. We are experiencing a technology-driven post-industrial revolution so complete that we have no name for it yet.

In this environment, legal and technology issues become intertwined and sometimes inseparable, obliging businesses to find advisers who can resolve both sets of issues simultaneously. Leaders in a range of industries trust the Blakes Technology group, one of the largest and most highly respected in Canada, to serve as their reliable one-stop shop for any legal need that involves technology.

The world’s largest multinationals and technology vendors regularly retain Blakes to assist with a range of issues, such as overseeing complex information technology (IT) outsourcing and procurement arrangements and drafting technology transfer, development, distribution, and licensing agreements. We advise companies on digital security and encryption infrastructures, and review their data processing and electronic data interchange protocols.

Smaller companies, such as hardware and software developers and e-businesses, also seek us out when acquiring technology assets and start-ups or when needing advice on the commercialization of technology products and services. We help protect ownership rights in software, handle source code escrow and trust arrangements, and provide a host of other services to technology developers. Our cohesive national team draws on talented professionals from every office nationwide.

Our industry-leading IT lawyers possess a remarkable diversity of experience and education, including backgrounds in engineering, computer science and management information systems. What we all share is a deep understanding and appreciation of the business realities of the technology industry and the ways in which technology affects countless strategic and tactical decisions that companies make every day.
