Mr. Bydalek concentrates his practice in the growing area of Technology Law, including Computer Law and Intellectual Property. He has worked directly with key information technology professionals and technology companies in a variety of transactional and operational matters, frequently serving as lead counsel to negotiate and strategize high-profile and high-value technology transactions. Mr. Bydalek routinely advises his clients on a wide variety of technology matters including preparation and negotiation of licensing, development, outsourcing and distribution agreements in the software and technology industries, providing counseling on Internet laws and regulations, the securing and protecting of sensitive personal data, and the protection and commercialization of trademarks and copyrights.

Although his practice in the past decade has been focused on technology transactions, Mr. Bydalek worked as a complex commercial litigator before going in-house as an intellectual property attorney for a transportation company. His rich experiences from both the perspective of a litigator and in-house counsel have made him an effective, thoughtful and pragmatic negotiator for his clients.
