Technology Disputes

Technology is embedded in almost every business and when disputes related to technology arise they are often complex and of strategic importance. We act for multi-national suppliers of technology, Canadian innovative disrupters, enterprises using technology and technology service providers. We have handled some of Canada’s highest value technology disputes and technology first-time issues, bringing our creativity to every mandate.

Disputes about technology or business disputes in the technology context have a unique cadence, with strategic implications for our clients. They require an understanding of technology sectors, the prevailing jargon and the relevant regulatory environment. Importantly, technology disputes often cross traditional legal boundaries, requiring a mix of experience with sophisticated contract law principles, intellectual property concepts and statutory torts. It is also a highly internationalized field.

Goodmans has a holistic and highly effective approach to technology disputes: As the situation warrants, we deploy members of the firm’s dispute resolution, technology transaction and intellectual property groups to reach the client’s objective. Actively seeking creative business solutions, aggressively pursuing litigation or arbitration, and seamlessly applying both approaches simultaneously is our hallmark. We do not start at ground zero when taking on a technology dispute – because we have a practice focussed on such disputes, we are well up the curve on day one.
