Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli welcomes Mark A. Petry as a shareholder in the firm’s national Technology Transactions and Data Privacy Practice.

Based in Polsinelli’s Washington, D.C. office, Petry focuses his practice on aspects of technology and commercial transactions. He represents both emerging companies seeking to develop and commercialize new types of offerings and large established companies seeking to transform their business.

“Mark brings deep experience in tech transactions and knowledge across a wide variety of industries,” said Polsinelli Technology Transactions and Data Privacy Practice Chair Greg Kratofil. “He is a proven professional and will be a valuable member of our practice as we start to expand our technology transaction presence in Washington.”

Petry is the first member of the Technology Transactions and Data Privacy Practice to be based in Washington, D.C. He advises clients through the lifecycle of developing and implementing business plans and establishing strategic or other transactional relationships and programs ranging from initial planning, to structuring and leading negotiations, addressing financial, marketing, compliance or operational concerns and related mergers or acquisitions.

He regularly represents companies in complex business transactions involving outsourcing, development, licensing, distribution, teaming, software as a service, colocation, leasing, cloud computing, and intellectual property rights, with a particular focus on new and transformational technologies or business models.

“Polsinelli has an incredibly talented team of attorneys and significant nationwide resources that allow them be successful,” said Petry. “Dedication to excellent client service is a huge part of the culture here. I look forward to working with our current and future clients and providing solutions that match their business goals.”

Petry is a graduate of The George Washington University Law School, and also received a bachelor’s degree from The College of Wooster in Ohio.

Polsinelli’s Technology Transactions team is comprised of a cross-functional group of more than 30 lawyers with significant experience in the technology industry, including prior in-house experience and professional backgrounds in engineering and technical consulting.
