Michael Hagele grew from humble beginnings, working in a car wash, to a capable attorney who works in science-based industries including the aerospace and technology sector. Over the course of his career he has worked with clients in the San Francisco and Los Angeles areas. Hagele’s competence in negotiations and licensing have proven effective. He is also an investor in many companies in both foodservice and hospitality.
Michael was recently interviewed by IdeaMensch, an online professional magazine. He was given an opportunity to talk about his work, his ideas, and his vision.
Hagele uses innovative thinking to integrate ideas that may not immediately be considered for technology and science based business negotiations. He has confidence that small law firms and independent attorneys can provide exceptional, affordable service.
A Day at Work
Hagele schedules priorities for every day. He begins by handling technology clients, customarily dealing with intellectual rights. This is the time he spends on contracts and licenses for technology. This takes most of his morning. In the early afternoon he rides a bicycle to clear his mind. He takes the time come up with new ideas regarding ways to handle client issues. He uses the brain-break as a way to freshen his thoughts so, when he returns to the office, he is better equipped to assist his clients.
He continues his work into the evening by managing new client questions and issues and helping to resolve any long-term issues. When he has finished managing his attorney affairs, he contacts overseas investment partners to check on the progress of his investments and discuss game plans.
Hagele’s client-centered approach has enabled him to be a popular choice for the tech-industry. He believes artificial intelligence (AI) is intriguing and invests in the growth potential of the technology. As an entrepreneurial attorney, he ensures his customers are his priority. He understands his responsibility toward clients and does his best because he understands his role can make or break a client’s future.
Like many entrepreneurs, he has not always had success. He reports that once he tried investing in a restaurant with a celebrity chef. Unfortunately, the chef’s involvement did not include investment in the monetary success of the company. Hagele learned quickly that equity participation was necessary for success.
