Pryor Cashman’s Technology Group combines strong intellectual property experience with a pragmatic, business-oriented, problem-solving perspective. Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of copyright, trademark, patent and trade secret law as well as substantial experience as commercial and transactional attorneys.
