Barrett Hammond counsels emerging and established technology companies from formation to exit. His practice focuses on corporate and intellectual property law matters, as he advises clients on business structuring and strategy, corporate finance, joint ventures, intellectual property licensing and distribution, and mergers and acquisitions. 

His work includes counseling clients through their most pivotal transactions, with a primary focus on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate finance, and technology licensing.  As a deal lawyer, he brings deep experience in the M&A arena, having advised on transactions ranging from 20 million to over 9 billion in value.

In his joint venture practice, he helps clients build strategic relationships with key talent, investors, and intellectual property contributors.  These transactions often involve industry executives, scientists, or engineers, who provide services or intellectual property to a joint venture entity in exchange for equity or other forms of incentive compensation.  He regularly negotiates the nuanced aspects of these dynamic relationships and prepares the principal transaction documents, including complex operating agreements, equity incentive plans, profits interest and phantom equity award agreements, contribution agreements and licensing agreements.

Barrett’s clients range from emerging companies to Fortune 500 companies. He represents investors, business owners and operators across a variety of industries, with a primary focus on the following sectors: life sciences, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, cyber security, and media and entertainment.
