Companies operating in the technology field need both the assurance that they are maximizing on the potential of their most valuable asset, as well as protecting it to the greatest extent possible. To this end, the firm’s attorneys provide both guidance and legal support in the business aspects of a deal - ranging from manufacturing, development, licensing, and sales and marketing of technologies. They combine their business acumen with their negotiation skills, and work with all types of contracts ranging from OEM, Channel and VAR, distribution and marketing agreements, IP service supply, as well as trademark, software licensing (both as providers and recipients), escrow arrangements (both in Israel and overseas), technology transfer agreements, strategic partnerships, and the like. The firm’s expertise in representing both sides in different types of deals allows it to effectively analyze the strategy of the other party, and to efficiently advise clients as a result.
Further, the lawyers of Yuval Levy & Co. offer comprehensive litigation experience in intellectual property lawsuits – both in patent cases and other types of IP infringement such as copyright, trademark, and trade secret disputes, as well as related contractual matters. Skilled in the defense of its clients’ major assets, and as an example, the firm handled the representation of a large UK-based pharmaceutical firm against a US based company; legal proceedings regarding the patent dispute were worldwide and the suit became one of the most complex patent trials on record. A settlement between the parties of the Israeli litigation (formed in large part as the result of an appeal brought by this law firm, which was accepted by the Israeli Supreme Court) laid down principles which were later applied to related cases worldwide. In another, recent case argued by the firm, the Supreme Court adopted a precedential legal theory regarding liability for contributory patent infringement.
As new technologies emerge, the members of the firm continue to be on the cutting edge – both in the types of sophisticated legal services it offers its clients, as well as the practical understanding of the concerns of its clients.
