Tech licensing for San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and beyond

There are law firms, and then there’s Bedrock.

Bedrock is a San Francisco-based technology licensing law firm. Negotiating complex licensing agreements is our core competency and the nucleus of our firm’s strength and success. We have a rare and invaluable grasp of strategic tech licensing issues and combine years of legal expertise with deep industry knowledge and refreshingly creative thinking to help our clients to close lucrative, multi-year licensing deals. We deliver excellent client service and create a working environment where talented people can succeed, which underpins our ability to diligently represent tech clients in complex SaaS negotiations with enterprise companies. We don’t work for our clients. We work with them to drive long-term growth and customer engagement and we deliver incisive results that count.

Supporting Innovation

There are three key competencies that set us apart from other transactional law firms: fluency in Salesforce negotiations, deep industry knowledge, and our multi-channel approach.

Salesforce negotiations

The core part of our technology practice is drafting and negotiating technology licensing agreements. We take the time to understand our clients’ technologies, build out due diligence checklists, and identify key legal and business issues before every negotiation or contract draft. Our clients offer their SaaS, software, and hardware technologies as direct-to-consumer or enterprise solutions or through Google, Microsoft, and Salesforce OEM or ISVForce partnerships. We work closely with founders, CEOs, COOs, and corporate GCs to close complex licensing deals effectively and efficiently.

Deep industry knowledge

Bedrock has a dedicated team of trademark and branding attorneys with marketing and founder experience who provide counseling on brand strategy and protection, trademark registration and trademark applications in the US and internationally, trademark prosecution and licensing, domain name disputes, and UDRP.
