- negotiating cross-border collaborative research and licensing agreements with various world-renowned universities,
- negotiations with large multinational medical device and pharmaceutical companies over the disclosure and potential monetization of a company’s intellectual property, and

Mr. Herrick has also represented multiple software development companies and software developers in negotiations over independent contractor agreements and subcontractor agreements.

While working as an associate at a large New York City firm, Mr. Herrick assisted in the representation of a group of private equity funds in a “credit bid” acquisition of a popular fine china maker, a hedge fund during the fund’s liquidation and transfer of $2 billion in assets to a private equity fund.

Recently, he prepared expert testimony used in an international arbitration proceeding involving contractual breaches and intentional misconduct by a software developer and system administration that resulted in a significant arbitration award.
