Based in London, Cambridge, Frankfurt and Paris, Goodwin’s Technology Europe team is fully integrated and built to serve all legal needs for global technology companies.

The Goodwin technology team leads the market through all stage of the company life cycle. We advise clients on legal and business matters related to company formation, IP protection, licensing and commercial agreements, as well as on venture financing to IPOs, M&A, corporate governance, board matters and more. We partner with the most active venture capital firms, incubators and investment banks in the market.

From structuring transactions to resolving high-stakes intellectual property disputes, we understand the unique needs of each client and anticipate how those needs can change over time. The Goodwin team includes sophisticated IP counsel with deep transactional expertise which maximizes our effectiveness in structuring patent portfolios and negotiating licensing agreements.

Our lawyers are highly-skilled not only in the relevant technical issues and in the presentation and support of our clients' interests, but also in project managing the legal and documentation process through all stages. This includes planning the tax and commercial aspects of a transaction, in-depth due diligence reviews, and contract structuring and negotiation through to post-completion integration.

Goodwin also has the unique ability to offer an experienced United States expansion team to assist start-ups and growth-stage technology companies through their launch, expansion, financing, partnerships, M&A and IPO in the U.S. Leveraging our extensive network of venture capitalists and corporates, we are perfectly positioned for expansion requirements.
