Dykema lawyer authors treatise on technology transaction agreements

Dykema attorney Mark Malven authored a treatise published by the Practising Law Institute (PLI) titled, "Technology Transactions: A Practical Guide to Drafting and Negotiating Commercial Agreements."

A recognized leader in the area of technology transactions, Malven was contacted by PLI to write the treatise. Fellow Dykema attorneys Kit Winter, Steve Tupper, Joanne Lax, Janet Stiven, Steve Sayre, John Guenther and Jeanne Whalen also contributed chapters.

Presented in a streamlined fashion with an eye toward the transactions an in-house counsel or traditional IP or general practitioner is frequently asked to handle, the treatise provides the reader with the tools necessary to draft, review and negotiate technology transaction agreements while properly addressing the most important issues. It offers many practical examples, including nine different types of form agreements, numerous practice tips on how to avoid common and uncommon legal traps, and a discussion of many regulatory and privacy considerations that must be kept in mind.

Malven is the leader of the Firm's Technology and Outsourcing Transactions practice. For more than 20 years, he has represented both customers and technology vendors, handling more than 1,000 technology transactions involving outsourcing, licensing, development, consulting, distribution, sponsored university research, manufacturing, value-added reseller, e-commerce, acquisition, and joint venture relationships. He has served as a primary negotiator for some of the largest outsourcing transactions of their kind ever undertaken, involving billions of dollars in services.
