Overview

Laying a foundation for future growth

Software is ubiquitous. We all depend on it without even thinking about it. But laws and regulations governing software, software as a service (SaaS), and open source code are all relatively new and are still emerging. That’s why software companies need experienced legal counsel who stay up-to-date on the latest developments in the industry.

They need the technologically savvy lawyers of Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig. Our law firm works with companies that develop, manufacture, distribute and license software. We help them protect their innovations and create a solid foundation for the future.
