What People Say About Us
Rockstar Consortium is very pleased to have Mike Dunleavy and the team at LaBarge Weinstein under retainer for all of our corporate legal requirements. Mike and LW have provided Rockstar with responsive, effective and practical legal advice and have consistently added value for Rockstar in its dealings with its 4,000+ patents. We would not hesitate to recommend the LW team to anyone seeking top-tier corporate legal advice, and particularly where their business involves technology or intellectual property.
* In December 2014, Rockstar Consortium and its partners, Apple, Microsoft, Ericsson, Blackberry and Sony, announced the entry into an agreement to sell Rockstar’s entire portfolio of patents to a consortium assembled by RPX Corp, comprised of more than 30 companies, including Google and Cisco.
Startups are hard enough as it is. We needed our law firm to be a competitive advantage and that’s exactly what LaBarge Weinstein is for us.
I’ve worked with Mike Dunleavy for more than 15 years on many significant and complex transactions. There’s a good reason that Summerhill Venture Partners uses Mike and the LW team for our Canadian investment work and recommends them to our investee companies and others – they are at the top of the law game in Canada with decades of experience. They understand the cross border tech space from both the company and investor standpoint; be it general corporate and partnership transactions, structuring various business operating arrangements, financing, and significant M&A events. They have a team that is second to none. We always know that our investee companies are in good hands if represented by LW.
Labarge Weinstein has been acting as Neptec’s legal counsel for nearly ten years. Over that time we have come to appreciate the extra effort LW professionals put into understanding our business and its challenges so they can tailor legal services and advice to help us achieve our corporate goals. They have become a valued part of our team.
After a successful exit with LaBarge in 2005, it was no surprise that the only firm I wanted by my side when I started Tungle was LaBarge Weinstein. The LW team’s experience representing startups helped us through two rounds of funding and our eventual successful exit to RIM in 2011
