I love working hand in hand with entrepreneurs to build great companies. I provide practical, business-oriented general counsel services to technology companies accross their life-cycle, from earliest stages through IPO/exit readiness. This includes corporate, securities, commercial, employment/compensation benefits matters. I have experience in-house accross a diverse industries (digital music, automotive, ag-tech) and bring ample curiousity and engagment to all my client relationships.
I also guest lecture at the University of Washington Law School on start-up issues and mentor third year law students in a clinical entrepreneurship and the law program. This is great fun and a great way to give back to the community.
