The Boston Business Journal recently profiled 40 young leaders in its annual "40 Under 40" feature. Included on this year's list was Hale and Dorr Partner Jorge Contreras, who is vice-chair of the firm's Internet Law Group. In the nine years since Mr. Contreras graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School, he has focused almost exclusively on representing high tech companies. In 1994, Mr. Contreras helped to represent the first Internet browser company in its licensing and public financing transactions. Since then, the development of his career has coincided with the Internet boom, thereby making him one of the city's most knowledgeable Internet lawyers.
