Peter C.


Peter Quittmeyer is one of the pioneers in the field of software licensing and computer law. He is nationally recognized for his work with technology transactions, including outsourcing and service transactions, domestic and international licensing and distribution, asset transfers and software disputes. His practice includes both transactions and client counseling.

Peter focuses on procurement, supply chain and e-commerce, including manufacturing, supply, distribution, web marketing and compliance. He is the principal author of one of the leading treatises in the field of computers, software and information technology. Peter handles mergers and acquisitions, ranging from small to multibillion dollar transactions, and venture capital transactions—on both the issuer and investor side—primarily involving technology-based and biotech businesses. According to clients, Peter has “very good industry knowledge” and is “an excellent negotiator who is highly prepared and skilled at grasping the subtleties of a transaction” (Chambers USA 2014).

He has, for several decades, been a leading authority on Georgia’s no-compete and trade secret laws. Peter also serves as an expert witness regarding trade practices in the software industry in court and arbitration cases.
