About
I work with small and medium size companies to build successful businesses. My clients benefit from my extensive legal and business experience. My goal is to build a relationship with my clients and become a trusted adviser.

I have experience with mergers and acquisitions and financings including seed rounds, convertible notes, and preferred stock. I also prepare documents for websites such as terms of use and privacy policies. I also draft license, consulting, employment, distribution, non-disclosure, beta test, website development, and shareholder agreements. I also prepare incorporation and LLC documents.
