Complex contract law and intellectual property rights

As a key component of the firm’s practice, YMFZ represents a number of national companies and firms with respect to commercial contract drafting and negotiation. The firm utilizes its deep experience in complex commercial contracting, and its knowledge of regulatory frameworks and risk issues, to assist its clients in both day-to-day contracting needs and large transactions.

The firm has a specific emphasis on technology licensing and consulting agreements in the health, benefits and financial sectors. This includes software licensing, software-as-a-service agreements, benefit administration and exchange agreements, and professional consulting arrangements.

In recent years, the firm has played a central role in various multi-party co-operational business arrangements in these technology sectors, involving shared clients, data sharing, and technology development. As part of this work, we are adept at privacy issues, including HIPAA matters.

The firm also provides counsel on copyright matters and ongoing trademark services, including obtaining and maintaining federal registration, enforcing trademark rights, and litigation.
