Matthew Maliel is both a corporate attorney and a registered patent attorney, whose practice focuses on helping small to mid-market technology, manufacturing, and/or service companies with small legal departments manage (i) corporate transactions and (ii) intellectual property. Corporate transactional issues include drafting and negotiating contracts as well as managing mergers/acquisitions, joint ventures, and human resource/employment issues. Intellectual property issues include utilizing patents, trademarks and trade secrets to protect business technologies and corporate reputations. Having worked as in-house corporate counsel for large EPC and technology companies and as outside counsel with well-established corporate and intellectual property law firms, Matthew is dedicated to understanding each client’s industry and business needs – he truly understands that small companies require lawyers to provide business solutions at a reasonable cost.
Matthew volunteers with Bridges To Life, a prison-ministry in which volunteers visit a prison on a weekly basis to work with a group of imprisoned persons. Matthew also serves as a Eucharistic Visitor with his church, Palmer Memorial Episcopal, where he brings the holy sacraments of communion to the homes or hospital rooms of elderly and infirmed persons.
