Commercial Contracts and Tech Transactions

As any founder or serial entrepreneur knows, robust commercial contracts that develop, protect, and commercialize a company’s key assets are essential components of any successful tech start-up, whether at time of creation, acquisition, use, or commercial exploitation.


The Carney team of start-up, corporate, and transactional attorneys combine practical, real-world business acumen with sophisticated legal expertise that enables our clients to negotiate and close successful business relationships with customers, vendors, end-user consumers, resellers, or joint venture partners. Our bench of seasoned commercial attorneys works with clients in a broad range of industries including:

  • SaaS-based or traditional software development,
  • life sciences and biotech,
  • edtech,
  • health tech,
  • e-commerce,
  • electronics,
  • digital assets, and
  • information technology.

We understand the business models and best practices unique to each of these industries and regularly advise and assist clients buying, selling, licensing, or developing their technology. We also recognize that most technology solutions do not fit neatly into a one-size-fits-all box. We regularly work with clients closely to tailor a client’s suite of contracts to address each client’s unique needs. This may involve, procuring or selling hardware or other tangible goods or consumer products, adding or scoping professional services, building out a revenue-sharing component, or adapting to multi-jurisdictional regulatory environments.

Our team can assist clients with the preparation, review, and best practices of the relevant contracts and preferred contractual structure in the following subject areas, including but not limited to:

  • Master Service Agreements
  • Statements of Work and Service Level Agreements
  • Development and Professional Services Agreements
  • Software and IP Licensing Agreements
  • SaaS and Software Subscription Agreements
  • Online Terms of Use and End User Agreements
  • OEM and Supplier Agreements
  • Reseller and Referral Agreements
