Meyer Law: Summer Sunshine

The sun is shining and there’s a lot going on in the Chicago and Colorado technology communities! Get out and about and check out what we’re up to below!

An Exciting Launch, Startup Week Panels and an Awesome New Office

If you haven’t already heard, we launched a new website which includes a Founder’s Corner with information and tips for technology companies.  Check it out here!  I had a great time speaking at Boulder Startup Week and Longmont Startup Week, highlighting the mistakes startups often make such as failing to get a founder’s agreement in place and not protecting intellectual property. We also moved our Denver office to WeWork LoHi and we absolutely love it!  Enjoy the sunny blue skies and warm weather this summer!  Hope to see you around!

– Tricia Meyer, Founder + Managing Attorney, Meyer Law

Incredible Recognition as a Top Technology Lawyer! 

Our Founder, Tricia Meyer, was selected as an Emerging Lawyer for both Computer & Technology Law and Business Law for the second year in a row! Emerging Lawyers account for less than two percent of Illinois attorneys and are recommended by the state’s top attorneys as lawyers that will most likely lead the profession in the coming years. Tricia was chosen as only one of ten lawyers in Computer & Technology Law and is truly honored to be selected and recognized!  Read more about it here.
