Boston’s Hale and Dorr has created a strategic partnership with a North Carolina law firm to provide access for Hale and Dorr’s clients to a number of “promising” technology companies, according to William F. Lee, the firm’s managing partner based in Boston. Hale and Dorr, a technology and IPO law firm with 400 attorneys, has formed the venture with Hutchison & Mason of Raleigh, N.C. Lee said his firm recognizes the “phenomenal growth potential” of technology companies in the areas that Hutchison & Mason serves. “We are very impressed with Hutchison & Mason’s dynamic clients and the efficient and effective model that the law firm has developed for serving the legal needs of these early-stage technology companies,” Lee said. “We also hope to provide valuable services to clients of Hutchison & Mason when they need the resources and breadth of services of a large international technology law firm.” Hutchison & Mason, a nine-lawyer firm, focuses on representing early-stage Internet, software, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical device companies. Fred D. Hutchison, president of Hutchison & Mason, said his firm’s relationship with Hale and Dorr will introduce his clients to “more sources of venture capital and provide access to Hale and Dorr’s tremendous experience in handling IPOs for technology companies and their contacts with IPO underwriters.” “What we do best is work with start-up technology companies and guide them from their formative stage, through their various financing stages, and through their exit stage, where it is an IPO or an acquisition,” Hutchison said. Hale and Dorr’s international firm base will also be an asset for Hutchison & Mason, Hutchison said. “As the Internet continues to break down country boundaries and our clients’ operations become international, we will be able to use Hale and Dorr’s international capability to continue to serve our clients’ needs as they expand oversees,” Hutchison said. Hale and Dorr, established in 1918, has offices in Boston, Wellesley, Mass., New York, Washington, D.C., and Reston, Va. The firm also has offices in London and Oxford.
