Our Commitment to Diversity


As one of the strongest segments in the technology sector, proptech has grown exponentially while transforming real estate at all levels.

Technology innovations address an increasing array of real estate-related needs. Technology in buildings is helping drive better design and construction, transactions processes, and building management. Artificial intelligence is being used to enhance the experience of owners, operators, and users of all types of real estate, whether office, manufacturing, hotels, logistics, retail, multifamily, or agricultural. From improvements in managing the health, safety, sustainability, and efficiency of buildings to designing fully integrated robotic operations to enhancing the retailer and customer experience in brick and mortar shops, the possibilities are endless.

Our real estate and technology lawyers collaborate to address these innovations and help bring sophisticated technology solutions to many real estate sectors. As warehouses, fulfillment centers, and other commercial properties become ever smarter and more automated, our lawyers work on the contracts governing the data captured by these facilities. The contracts are needed to address issues concerning data privacy and ownership, procurement, and licensing for the sophisticated systems that are key in making these facilities operate efficiently. In addition, proptech growth fuels an increasing demand for the acquisition and development of data centers.

Our lawyers provide real estate and technology clients with comprehensive counsel to help them meet their goals. The team helps proptech companies with IT infrastructure and advises clients on various intellectual property needs.
