Schwabe expands tech and business practice with return of native Oregonian

Portland, OR. September 15, 2004

Andrew D. Barofsky Attorney Andrew D. Barofsky joins the Pacific Northwest’s first nanotechnology and microtechnology law practice group, formed earlier this month by the regional, multi-service law firm of Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt. Barofsky’s will also serve as a member of the firm’s business and technology practice group.

“Barofsky’s combined background in biochemistry, business and corporate law is a critical asset to the region’s established and emerging technology companies,” says Don Krahmer, Jr., co-chair of Schwabe’s technology and business practice group and its nanotechnology and microtechnology practice group.

Barofsky’s specializes in corporate law, intellectual property and patent law for science and technology companies. He has recognized expertise in technology transfer and commercialization in a variety of corporate, academic and health care settings. Barofsky most recently served as an associate at Boston-based Testa, Hurwitz & Thibeault, LLP, a global legal services provider for emerging growth companies. He has also worked as a summer associate at Lahive & Cockfield, LLP, Marger, Johnson & McCollom, LLP, and was a research associate at the Oregon Medical Laser Center, managing a research team to develop biological materials for use in prosthetic implants.

Barofsky is a current member of the American Electronics Association, the Software Association of Oregon, Oregon Entrepreneurs Association and Oregon Innovation Network, as well as being active with ONAMI and the Oregon Biosciences Association. He is also a member of the bar associations in Oregon, Massachusetts and Boston and the American Bar Association. Barofsky earned a juris doctor degree from Boston College Law School, an M.B.A. from Boston College and a bachelor of science degree in biochemistry from the University of Oregon.

Schwabe announced its new nanotechnology and microtechnology practice group last month to provide focused legal services for ‘small tech’ companies. The move was applauded by ONAMI, the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (www.onami.org).

“Schwabe has already helped put Oregon on the map of emerging ‘small tech’ hot spots,” said Skip Rung, executive director of ONAMI. “And they continue to set a leadership example in supporting economic development efforts that make a positive impact on Oregonians.”
