Andrew Share is the Managing Partner of Nixon Peabody’s Manchester, New Hampshire, office. Andrew concentrates his practice on counseling companies with respect to a wide range of corporate, commercial and business law matters, particularly in M&A, IP licensing and technology transactions and business process outsourcing. Prior to his move to private practice, Andrew served, for a number of years, as in-house counsel to Tyco International.
I have represented a wide range of companies—from startups to publically traded and Fortune globally ranked companies—through a variety of mergers, acquisitions, sales and restructurings. Navigating the M&A process for any company, big or small, can be a drain on a client’s time and resources. My approach has been to manage all aspects of the process (up to a client’s comfort level), freeing the client to attend to its other matters such as the day-to-day operations of its own business.
I regularly counsel companies and individuals in the commercialization and leveraging of their intellectual property rights and am experienced in drafting and negotiating research and development agreements, licensing agreements (from both the licensors’ and licensees’ perspective), co-development and other agreements involving the creation, acquisition, licensing or sale of intellectual property rights.
Technology touches almost every aspect of business and the value of the data and IP generated by a business is often not fully realized. I am thinking of new ways to help our clients maximize their own technology while minimizing the risks associated with third-party rights.
