David has experience in a wide variety of technologies and strategic legal matters, much of which was accumulated as general counsel for Intergraph Corporation, a multinational technology company.

In recent years, David has expanded his experience into the burgeoning biotech industry as general counsel for a clinical laboratory software company and as a member of the HudsonAlpha Institute foundation board.
