One of Milwaukee’s leading law firms, Michael Best & Friedrich, has joined the growing list of tenants in the International Water Technology Accelerator. The building will house water-related research activities for universities, existing water-related companies, The Water Council, and companies promoting business development and accelerator space for new, emerging water-related companies. Michael Best & Friedrich will lease space on the fifth floor of the seven-story building.
“Michael Best does a substantial amount of work with both start-ups and in the tech transfer space (bringing innovations to market),” said Scott Beightol, chairman of Michael Best & Friedrich LLP. “We see great promise with the Water Technology Accelerator in helping innovators patent and license their intellectual property, advising on business formation and structure, providing links to investment capital sources, and helping create new businesses here in our hometown. Talk about a ‘win win.'”
Water Council President and CEO Dean Amhaus said he is excited at the prospect of having such a prestigious law firm working with tenants of the new water research cluster.
“We look forward to having Michael Best & Friedrich be part of the International Water Technology Accelerator,” said Amhaus. “The firm will be a great addition and resource to the tenants.”
