Prometheus Partners is a law firm for the 21st Century. We aren’t trying to be different – we are different. We are a diverse group of accomplished former BigLaw partners & Executive In House counsel who chose a name that reflects our approach to the practice of law: Prometheus.
We cannot afford to do “bad business” so we must negotiate terms that protect Sony and achieve the optimal Risk Profile. In the last 20+ years, we have never seen the level of success we have had in closing such important agreements and reaching terms that are optimal for Sony as we achieved with Dan’s support.
–Tomoya Hayakawa, President Component Solutions Business Division, Sony Electronics Inc.
“Prometheus Partners understands our business and legal needs in a rapidly evolving technology field and provides highly skilled, efficient legal services.
I have enjoyed working with Michael Mori on several matters and consistently found him to be a valuable strategic advisor and skilled advocate.
Michael’s background as executive in-house counsel at leading technology companies is particularly valuable. He brings a sharp business acumen and understanding of technology and intellectual property that enables him to seamlessly collaborate with us on complex transactions.
Michael is dedicated to protecting our company’s interests and I appreciate his thoughtful, thorough approach and ability to provide innovative thinking and balanced solutions to help our company succeed.”
–David Westgor, Vice President, General Counsel & Secretary MicroVision, Inc.
As the Managing Director of a successful European public technology company that intends to expand into new geographic – and new product – markets, I quickly realized that Databeat’s ability to execute on our strategic vision was largely dependent upon the support of a law firm that demonstrated not only incomparable legal skill, but global perspective, exemplary business acumen and masterful strategic insight as well. We are certain we found such strategic advisors in Prometheus Partners. While we initially retained Prometheus as our outside counsel, we instantly recognized that their ability to quickly grasp, simplify and articulate complex technical concepts – and then contribute meaningfully to the creation of new business models – made them not only consummate corporate counsel, but ideal candidates for our board as well. Indeed, we were thrilled to recently name Daniel Quintero Chairman of the Board for our newest Databeat entity.
I can state – without reservation – that the attorneys who comprise Prometheus Partners are the most dedicated, committed and capable lawyers we’ve ever encountered. Every successful corporation requires sources of competitive advantage. Prometheus is certainly such a source of competitive advantage for Databeat.

Among the many distinguished characteristics that separates Prometheus Partners from other law firms is their ability to identify sources of sustainable differentiation to support client objectives. Commitment to the client represents another significant distinguishing characteristic consistently demonstrated by the Prometheus Partners team. Weather we need them in San Francisco, Southern California or Stockholm Sweden, Prometheus Partners takes every opportunity to better understand our industry, the competitive landscape, the regulatory environment, technology trajectories, potential partner synergies and our goals and risk threshold to insure that their advice is precisely calibrated and aligned with Cellastra’s aspirations and ambitions. They have proven themselves to be an invaluable, indeed indispensable, partner.
– Dr. Karl L. Mettinger, MD, PhD – Co-Founder, President and CEO, Cellastra, Inc.
“We have found Prometheus Partners to be not only an extraordinarily committed law firm staffed by seasoned & remarkably capable attorneys, but a phenomenally resourceful firm that exhibits impressive foresight and strategic ability. Prometheus has handled our transactional needs, for both our film project and the associated soundtrack, opened the door to beneficial relationships with respected Hollywood insiders and solidified our corporate governance processes. Perhaps most importantly, Prometheus opened the door to creative funding mechanisms that allowed us to finance our dream. RedEye Animation Corporation intends to represent the voice of the Latino Community in the entertainment industry… we feel secure knowing that Prometheus Partners stands beside us to provide the voice of strategic insight.”
—J.D. Segura, Chief Operating Officer, RedEye Animation Corporation
“I recently met with Daniel Quintero, Esq. of Prometheus Partners to prepare a service agreement for use with artists hired to create artwork for our winery’s labels and winery collateral. Having recently dealt with copyright issues with a former artist I wanted to be sure I would not have to go through that again. Daniel was extremely thorough and provided an extensive – but tailored – agreement that will give the message “don’t even try it” to any future service provider. It was a pleasure to work with Daniel who I found to be a generous and caring individual. I will certainly use Daniel and Prometheus again as needed.”
