Technology escrow

The technology escrow application was designed to protect each user and intellectual property owner’s interest in the items they are seeking to escrow. Strict terms and agreements will be established at the time of the escrow opening.

Technology escrow services are available to businesses that seek to make critical information available while protecting itself from the threat of confidential items being physically lost.

There is a lot of confidential information that must be made available during a merger and acquisition, and escrow associates offers you the alternatives and options to making this information available without risk of intellectual property theft or any sort of breach of documents or technology.
