Technology law is one of the broadest and fasting emerging forms of law out there! Technology law can pertain to laws regarding computers, smartphones and tablets, still yet it could pertain to communications law, or even laws that pertain to inventions, such as patent law.
Some technology lawyers do what many consider to be more traditional legal work. They negotiate details and manage the transactional details of business dealings to ensure that their company retains the upper hand. On the other hand, patent prosecution lawyers gain a technical background in the field in which they represent clients. Thus, they are best equipped to help draft and defend patent applications. IP lawyers learn a different specialty and are skilled contract lawyers who ensure that copyrights and trademarks are well defended.
