MUCHMORE & ASSOCIATES PLLC
New York Technology and Software Litigation Attorneys
Muchmore & Associates PLLC assists technology startups and other early-stage companies in forming corporate entities, negotiating shareholder agreements, raising capital through convertible notes and SAFEs, and negotiating employment contracts and independent contractor agreements with key staff, including provisions for vesting of equity, intellectual property, non-disclosure, non-compete, and non-solicitation language. When disputes arise under these agreements, Muchmore & Associates PLLC represents founders in litigation to preserve the integrity of their cap tables and intellectual property from unwarranted equity and IP ownership claims.
Technology and software litigation falls into three broad categories: breach of contract litigation concerning software and web development contracts; litigation involving funding, vesting, dilution and disputes between business partners; and intellectual property litigation concerning patents and copyrights. Technology and software firms are also constantly trying to raise new capital to scale their operations and conquer new markets. For most tech startups, this funding comes in the form of convertible notes, allowing valuation to be postponed until subsequent rounds of venture capital funding. Software and web development contracts typically provide a general scope of work, delivery dates and payment milestones, but the specifications are often vague and subject to substantial change during the development process. This leaves software and web developers subject to ambiguity in their contracts that can lead to litigation if the software or web developer and its client cannot reach a compromise.
