About
My experience as in-house counsel for a major university and as a litigator at a big firm, has created a great foundation for me to help businesses. I devote my practice to helping businesses in a variety of legal matters, including: reviewing and negotiating agreements (NDAs, contractor agreements, distribution agreements, manufacturing agreements, consulting agreements, lease agreements); providing legal counsel on employment matters, risk management, commercial disputes and litigation, trademark strategy and enforcement, privacy and security (website terms of use and privacy policy), and other regulatory compliance matters.
