Technology Transactions

Don’t just work at the cutting edge of tech. Redefine it.

Even before Silicon Valley became an incubator for innovation, Wilson Sonsini’s legal work propelled disruption and launched whole industries that changed the world—and continue to do so today.

Our technology transactions practice is fuel for disruption. 

From the semiconductor, computer, and software pioneers of the ‘70s and ‘80s to the life sciences, internet, AI, and sustainability innovators of today, Wilson Sonsini has been part of nearly every milestone that defined what we mean by “tech.” We provide expertise and counseling  for every kind of transaction our clients may experience, from their earliest stages of development to their arrival as a large entity and well beyond. 

Our technology transactions representation encompasses a wide range of work for our clients. We help them complete strategic alliances and joint ventures, sales and spinouts, collaborations, distribution and manufacturing agreements, IP licenses, outsourcing, litigation settlements, and more. Our technology transactions lawyers often specialize in particular industries, from semiconductor, to generic pharmaceuticals, to autonomous navigation, to Blockchain and crypto currency, to MedTech, to electronic gaming, to music and media, and beyond.  Our deep wells of knowledge are a key to the success of our practice. 

Because we’re not merely back-office service providers, we’re looking for self-starters with experience or interests in the technology and life sciences industries, who want to be deeply involved in their clients’ success. We have innovative training processes inside the firm to make sure you’re quickly ready to contribute. Consistent with our position as a premier technology law firm and practice group, we are forward thinking in adopting new tools and technologies to assist, enhance, and automate aspects of our practice.  As part of one of the most well-regarded law firms in the world for this work, you’ll be able to help drive legal innovation, take leadership roles early, and play a strategic role in helping clients navigate the law, solve problems, and seize new opportunities. 

And you’ll do so alongside some of the brightest minds in the business.
