About
After a 15 year career as a computer programmer and software engineer, I have worked as an attorney since 2000. My primary focus for the first 15 years of my legal career was intellectual property litigation, primarily patent-related. For the past two years, I have been working with Binary Ventures Partners, a venture capital fund that seeks to introduce South African start-up enterprises into the American and international markets. I perform due diligence on possible ventures, analyze their IP, financial models, corporate organization and regulatory compliance issues, and provide them strategic guidance.
