IP & Commercial Transactions


Our comprehensive counseling on IP and commercial matters is grounded in our deal-making experience and in-depth knowledge of industries and technologies.


We approach our practice with great sensitivity to our clients’ objectives and challenges and with a sophisticated understanding of the commercial contexts in which intellectual property and technology issues may arise. From highly bespoke commercial arrangements to traditional M&A matters, we always focus on advancing our clients’ strategic business goals and relationships. Our clients rely on our trusted advice and appreciate our strong emphasis on quality drafting, our creative problem-solving, and our common-sense approach to negotiations.

We collaborate closely with colleagues across the firm to create novel solutions for clients whenever IP and technology issues arise – including as part of mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, financings, restructurings and capital markets offerings. Our lawyers are also deeply involved in our interdisciplinary Data Privacy & Cybersecurity practice and bring their experience in data privacy and commercialization to the matters we handle.


“Davis Polk’s lawyers are responsive, practical in handling the issues and are willing to give me a practical answer not an overly disclaimed legal opinion.”
