Protecting Innovation is Our Passion…
The firm femida.us is headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia (USA). From its very inception femida was designed as a truly international law firm joining the interrelated and complementary skills and expertise of its attorneys. Our firm focuses primarily on representing hi-tech, software, and internet companies expanding onto the Western markets. We have a wealth of experience in assisting startups in assessing, prioritizing, and addressing their legal needs in the fields of corporate law, M&A transactions, intellectual property protection, contract negotiations, and litigation.
We have a unique experience in addressing legal issues arising from commercializing and marketing innovative technologies and hi-tech products developed in the former Soviet Union. Femida’s primary role is to advise clients as to how to resolve legal issues while taking advantage of new business opportunities.
Our firm’s legal services are combined through an integration of three distinct practices:
The corporate practice of the firm includes representation of clients in connection with the formation of technology companies, corporate governance, complex shareholder agreements, venture deals, and exit strategies for hi-tech enterprises and their founders. Our attorneys advise domestic and international clients in cross-border corporate transactions, including complex corporate structuring, establishing and maintaining legal entities with foreign ownership, mergers and acquisitions, and financing transactions.
The technology practice focuses on registration and prosecution of copyrights and trademarks, IP disputes, cross-border technology transfers in the areas of software, telecommunication, entertainment, and information security; offshore software development; complex reseller, distribution, and licensing agreements. Our counsel also provides a full range of patent services for software and internet companies.
The litigation practice is designed to protect the interests of our clients in state and federal courts, appellate courts, arbitration tribunals, and administrative boards, including the United States Patent and Trademark Office proceedings, in connection with intellectual property, contract, and corporate disputes.
Femida’s approach to problem-solving through the close integration of three distinct legal practices creates the perfect synergy of the best notions of the legal profession with efficiency, modern techniques, and entrepreneurial spirit.
