I'm a 2023 Nixon Peabody Pro Bono Champion.Read more about our Pro Bono program
Vince assists clients in a variety of intellectual property and corporate matters, with a special focus on intellectual property transactions, including technology transfer and licensing, research transactions and operations, and global IP portfolio management. Vince draws on his doctorate-level education and litigation experience to advise innovators and growth-driven companies in various industries, including life sciences, high tech, and fashion.
My practice is dedicated to helping both life sciences and high-tech clients create and implement IP strategies. I mainly focus on IP portfolio development and other corporate transactions, license agreements, and pre-litigation positioning. I also specialize in regulatory tech and life science research for academic institutions regarding technology transactions. Representative technologies in my practice include LEDs, software, telecom, GPS, semiconductors, computer chips, biotech, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and mechanical arts.
I help innovators and emerging companies grow their businesses by formulating strategies to protect and monetize their intellectual property as they bring their concepts to the marketplace. My work in this area includes IP licensing, IP enforcement, and other agreements.
Innovation drives growth. Strategically developing and licensing IP grants innovators the leverage to disrupt the market and lead their industries.
