David Goeschel has spent his entire career helping businesses increase their value through developing, protecting and commercializing their intellectual property, as well as by getting deals done through drafting, negotiating and implementing complex commercial contractual arrangements.
David’s practice focuses on combining his transactional skills of contract drafting and negotiation with his understanding of technology and intellectual property. He understands the importance of clear client communication throughout the contracting process, which he believes must strike a balance between zealously advocating for his client in order to reach a conclusion while still reaching a sound business deal that is beneficial for all parties.
David has extensive experience structuring and negotiating a wide range of complex commercial contracts, including non-disclosure agreements, manufacturing, distribution, supply, licensing, consulting and other contractual arrangements throughout the supply chain process. In particular, he focuses his practice on technology transactions, with vast experience drafting and negotiating software license, development and SaaS agreements. David’s clients range from start-up technology companies to Fortune 500 businesses.
In addition to his contract practice, David routinely has “a seat at the table” with his clients when crafting strategies for brand development, protection and commercialization. David counsels clients with respect to all aspects of their trademark portfolio, including researching and providing opinions on the availability and registrability of trademarks, filing and prosecuting trademark applications, policing trademarks for infringing uses, and addressing actual and potential infringement of trademarks.
For his work in these areas, David was named a Super Lawyers Rising Star in both 2016 and 2017.
