Mike Bartley


Michael A. BartleyMichael Bartley joined Clocktower Law in 2008. Mike grew up in Waltham, MA, on computers and the Boston Celtics. Lacking height and athleticism, he stuck with the former. After graduating from Harvard, Michael tried to improve the fantasy sports world by developing a baseball simulation around which to base a fantasy baseball game. To actually pay the bills, he tried to make the world a safer place by programming video security products working at Biscom, Inc., in Chelmsford. Eventually tiring of programming, Michael set off to law school to fix problems with technology law itself. While in law school, Michael became managing editor of IDEA: The Intellectual Property Law Review, and gained practical experience working at Franklin Pierce Law Center’s Intellectual Property and Transaction Clinic and at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society Cyberlaw Clinic.
