The law of innovation: Alumni, faculty, students keep engine of high-tech growth humming

The law of innovation

Dean Mead is featured in the Spring 2013 edition of UF Law, a publication of the University of Florida Fredric G. Levin College of Law. The article is titled, “The law of innovation” by Francie Weinberg and Richard Goldstein. The article focuses on UF’s Innovation Square that helps to grow entrepreneurial businesses, technology and ideas.

Jack Bovay, managing shareholder of Dean Mead’s Gainesville office talks about his role as Adjunct Professor of the “Advising the Entrepreneur” course at UF Law School, now in its third year. This Spring, the class had 12 third-year students, all of whom have taken business and tax type classes to the extent that they can. Many have come from a business school background – accounting or other related undergraduate degree and they want to have a business law practice. My goal is to expose them to the kinds of issues that lawyers face when a client walks in and says, “I have an idea for the next great widget, and I need legal advice.”
