I’m John R. McHale.
I’m an attorney (general business counseling, law of the internet, M&A, venture formation and finance) who represents individuals and privately held businesses, including those operating in the fields of technology/internet/media. I have a deep interest in internet law, tech and policy.
Formerly, I acted as outside general, securities and M&A counsel to a number of both public and privately held entertainment and media companies, and I hold degrees from Stanford University and The University of Chicago Law School. I am a member of the State Bar of California, and I am not licensed in any other jurisdiction.
