Michael Barron ('85) has joined Bingham McCutchen's Boston office as a partner in the Corporate Practice Group.

Joining from DLA Piper’s Boston office, where he was a corporate and securities partner, Barron represents technology and life sciences companies and advises companies, entrepreneurs and investors in the areas of formation and governance, early- and later-stage debt and equity financings, mergers and acquisitions, and intellectual property matters.
“Michael’s substantial emerging growth company and life sciences practice complements Bingham’s strategy and commitment to further invest in our technology and life sciences strengths, particularly in Boston and Northern California,” said Bingham partner Steven Browne, managing partner for the Boston office and co-leader of the Corporate Practice Group.
Barron has closed approximately $1 billion in venture financings, including the largest venture capital financing in the U.S. in the second quarter of 2011. He is also the founder of the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange, a trade association serving more than 7,000 New England professionals involved in Internet and digital technologies industries.
“Michael is highly respected among lawyers who practice in the life sciences and tech arenas as well as industry leaders,” said Bingham partner Julio Vega, who represents emerging growth companies and established businesses in all areas of technology. “He is an excellent addition to Bingham.”
