Technology & Innovation

Embracing Change, Driving Innovation 


Caldera Law is dedicated to helping businesses, entrepreneurs, technologists, and investors navigate the complex legal and regulatory terrain associated with technological innovation and invention. Our practice is set against the backdrop of an ever-evolving technological landscape, where traditional legal frameworks often fall short of addressing the unique needs of emerging technology companies. 


We offer a comprehensive suite of services tailored to the dynamic world of emerging technology companies. From laying the groundwork for your venture to safeguarding your intellectual property, from strategizing for capital growth to navigating potential regulatory, labor and employment, and compliance challenges, and from exploring new markets to implementing exit strategies, Caldera Law is your trusted legal advisor throughout your venture's journey.

We specialize in representing high-growth and early-stage companies as well as their founders and investors. Our proficiency extends to both issuers and investors in private company financing, and we have extensive experience outside of the U.S., including clients in Latin America and Europe.

Interdisciplinary Approach

Our unique, collaborative approach merges our Corporate, Intellectual Property, and Litigation practices, positioning Caldera at the crossroads of law and technology.


Our primary areas of focus include business formation and structuring, growth strategies, corporate governance, equity and debt financing, mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, strategic alliances as well as executive and employee agreements and compensation matters. Our attorneys bring a wealth of experience in commercial transactions, strategic outside general counsel, VC financing, and public offerings. Our reach extends to a wide array of intellectual property services, including advising on and establishing trademarks, trademark prosecution, domain name management, comprehensive copyright consultation, and branding strategies, as well as litigation settlements.

Leading our Technology & Innovation practice is Karina DuQuesne, a seasoned professional who operates at the nexus of business, law, and technology. In addition to her role as Partner at Caldera Law, she is the founder and managing principal of Valia Partners, an AI-powered advisory firm that provides services to high-growth companies and startups in the areas of legal, operations, and human capital management.
