How We Work image

Our Commitment: JusTech Law is committed to ensure that our clients receive prompt, effective and practical services that meet their needs.  We do this through the expertise of our attorneys,  the firms we partner with, and the skilled and dedicated attorneys who work with us.

Our Expertise: JusTech Law was founded by Michele Herman, a patent and technology licensing attorney with over 30 years of technical, business, and legal experience. As an attorney, Michele has  served as both in-house counsel and in private practice. She has counseled both small and large clients, as well as communities and organizations that develop standards, open source software, and other collaboratively-developed technical materials.

Michele is an electrical engineer, a registered patent attorney, and an experienced negotiator. She has served in leadership roles in the American Intellectual Property Law Association, the Section of Science and Technology in the American Bar Association, and the Intellectual Property Owners Association. She has taught standards and open source courses in Seattle area law schools. Michele is a frequent speaker and author on the topics of industry standards, open source software, and intellectual property transactions. She is a trained mediator and has served as an expert witness.

Our Partners: JusTech Law partners with firms of all sizes to provide JusTech’s clients with a full range of legal and business services. We develop relationships with experts in different areas of the law to ensure that our clients receive holistic, comprehensive advice. We are always looking to expand our relationships. If you have expertise in Delaware nonstock corporate matters, international trade, tax, trademark registration, employment law or another complementary area of the law, please contact us about potential opportunities to work together.

People and Careers: Like all small law firms, managing workloads while client work ebbs and flows is not always easy. We ensure that our clients receive prompt and competent service even during those flows. JusTech hires attorneys who we supervise and train to assist in matters on a case-by-case basis. If you have some transactional experience or experience with either standards or open source and are interested in opportunities to work with seasoned attorneys who specialize in standards, open source, or technology transactions on a contract-basis, please reach out.
