About
I am a Yale Law graduate with 20 years experience in large law firms and a variety of disruptive companies ranging from 15-5000 employees. I have built legal departments and processes from scratch for several companies and taken two companies public. I look for real world solutions and the most direct route to an objective; I don't play for points.

"As our 'On-Call General Counsel' Greg has been an indispensable asset to our organization. He has assisted us with everything from customer contracts & IP licensing to venture financing and tricky HR matters. He understands our business, start-up priorities and risks. He consistently finds ways to deliver incredibly savvy legal advice in the form of business-informed solutions, and a menu of options to enable our desired outcomes. He is as good as any BigLaw partner I've worked with on the law, but from 20 years of being a GC he has incredible pattern recognition and knows businesses from the inside. Oh, and he's 1/3 of the cost of the big guys."

"Greg was awesome. We granting our current counsel warrants and needed the document reviewed by an unbiased third-party. Greg clearly knows Valley standards and was able to give quick, helpful advice. We even jumped on a 30 minute phone call to go over everything. I'd definitely recommend Greg and would call upon him again when we need help. Thanks!"
