Few industries move as fast as Electronics and Software. With the rapid proliferation of new hardware and new apps, constant evaluation of your intellectual property strategy is required. You need a lawyer who can not only keep pace with your advances, but who can also anticipate what protection may have lasting value as the industry continues to evolve.

Many Oyen Wiggs lawyers have degrees or advanced training in fields related to electronics and software including electrical engineering, engineering physics, physics, and computer science, as well as practical work experience in these fields. This experience facilitates effective communication between our lawyers and your technical personnel, so that we can obtain meaningful intellectual property protection for your inventions.

Our depth of experience in this area can be demonstrated through some examples of our recent work. This includes helping clients evaluate and secure intellectual property protection for wireless charging apparatus, power supplies, downhole communication technology, wireless locks, electromagnetic displacement devices, obstruction detection systems for railways, gaze tracking systems, microelectronic fabrication, sound processing systems for vehicles, mobile communication systems and methods, graphics software, financial modelling software, gaming software, and medical software and devices.

Our lawyers have also advised clients on copyright and ownership issues relating to software, software development agreements, terms of use agreements, license agreements (including clickwrap agreements), and the implications of using and licensing software pursuant to open source license agreements.
