Foley & Lardner LLP

Foley & Lardner LLP represents technology companies in all stages of the business life cycle, from start-up through angel and venture capital funding to successful exits.

Foley's Emerging Technology attorneys understand the needs of creative, fast-moving businesses and provide practical advice from equity and founder issues, venture financings, and strategic alliances to employment matters, private and public securities, acquisitions, and complex financings. From Boston to Silicon Valley, we play a key part in the local and regional start-up communities and have close contacts with angel and venture funds, accelerator programs, and university tech centers and tech transfer offices.

Our world-class Intellectual Property lawyers possess exceptional technical skills and business insight in many of the industries represented at the Nantucket Conference: social media, communications, mobility, gaming, electronics, cleantech, health IT, and software, among others. In addition to our IP experience, the firm is nationally recognized as a thought-leader in privacy, IT outsourcing, open source, and government relations.
