A big, 'thank you' to Mick Bain and Graham Robinson at Wilmer Hale who have generously agreed to support some more scholarships to attend Business of Software next week in Boston. Hugely appreciated by all the recipients, and indeed by us. It is great to see a well-established and respected law firm doing something like that for the benefit of the Boston software ecosystem.
Mick leads the Wilmer Hale venture group where he advises companies on formation and governance issues, equity and compensation matters, initial- through late-stage venture capital financings, mergers and acquisitions, technology licensing and securities laws. Taking a practical business approach, Mr. Bain has helped his clients raise hundreds of millions of dollars in seed-stage and venture capital and has advised his clients through dozens of public offerings and acquisitions.
Graham is a vice chair of the Corporate Practice Group and a member of the firm's Mergers and Acquisitions Group. A good guy to know if Microsoft comes calling.
We look forward to seeing you in Boston next week! Thank you.
