Devine Millimet has a long history of serving the high technology industry in New England. Over the years we have proudly represented some of the most prominent entrepreneurs and most innovative companies in the region. In the early days of the high tech boom, we helped pioneers in the computer and networking industries, like Sanders Associates, Centronics, and Cabletron. Today, we assist developers of cutting-edge hardware and software products designed for a wide range of applications, from Internet and wireless telecommunications switching to 3-D printing, medical devices, and much more.

Our high tech attorneys draw on elements of the intellectual property, securities, and commercial transactions practices to provide innovative technology companies with strategic guidance from start up to exit strategy, and beyond.

We advise early-stage, high-growth and mature companies across a broad spectrum of technology-based industries and help them bring their innovative products and services to market. We assist clients with business formation, capital raising, day-to-day operations, and commercial transactions. We help develop creative solutions to the business and legal issues that arise in the course of sourcing, financing and closing complex strategic transactions. 

In addition to offering comprehensive transactional services, the group's lawyers advise clients on corporate governance, management equity and compensation programs, securities matters, technology and intellectual property issues, labor and employment, and employee compensation and benefits.
