Clients regularly seek Amir’s counsel on corporate and asset acquisitions and divestitures, IP-centric joint ventures, restructurings, data use and licensing, brand licensing and management and other intellectual property licensing, outsourcing agreements, software development, and the use and management of open-source software. 

He also continues to pursue collaborations between academia, industry, and the law, most recently focusing on novel issues arising from broader adoption of artificial intelligence technologies. His practice  increasingly focuses on the policy and social implications of technology adoption — what it means to live in a more technology-centric world. Amir is an annual guest lecturer at Cornell Tech for a multi-day module on data rights and data licensing and is also a regular speaker, panelist and commentator on artificial intelligence, digital assets and quantum computing.

In 2021, Chambers USA ranked Amir in Band 3 for Technology, where a client noted that he “is a very business-minded, hyper-intelligent lawyer who is highly knowledgeable and gives very practical, actionable advice for clients.”
