Intellectual Property Licensing


An avid gamer, Rick expanded his practice to include information technology, software licensing, and related contractual and intellectual property law issues, with a particular focus on Software-as-a-Service and custom software development. Together with his pharmaceutical and medical device clients, Rick's software clients represent just some of the cutting edge technological advancement happening in Ann Arbor and the Midwest.

After passage of the Jobs Act in 2012, Rick has followed and advised his clients on the SEC's slow but continuing push to democratize the corporate financing process through "crowdfunding" and related regulations including Rule 506(c), Regulation A+, and "Regulation: Crowdfunding".  He has also extensively advised clients on Michigan's own "Michigan Invests Locally Exemption" (MILE), and given talks and presentations on such topics to the Institute for Continuing Legal Education (ICLE), The University of Michigan, Michigan State College of Law, Ann Arbor SPARK, and the Michigan Angel Fund.

Rick has extensively researched and reviewed the Michigan Business Corporation Act and Delaware General Corporation Law in his role as co-author of the 2009 through 2017 supplements of Michigan Corporate Law and Practice, and presently serves as counsel to Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn, Michigan's biggest and most prestigious business law firm.
