About
I am a UC Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall) graduate with almost 14 years of corporate legal experience, six of which were spent at in-house counsel positions such as Jamba Juice Company, a publicly traded healthy lifestyle brand and restaurant retailer and franchisor, and 1-800 Radiator & A/C, the largest franchised automotive parts distributor in North America and a subsidiary of Driven Brands, Inc. In those positions, I focused on contracts negotiation and matters related to transactions, IP, employment and marketing. For more than seven years, I practiced corporate law and advised on mergers and acquisitions at top Bay Area law… read more firms, including Wilson Sonsini and Jones Day.
