About
I am a former engineer (UC Berkeley EECS) turned legal advisor to high tech startups. I have acted as outside general counsel to numerous companies, ranging from those with $0 in the bank to those with billion dollar market caps. I uniquely understand the needs of businesses at various life stages and am able to provide practical and results oriented legal advice. At the end of the day, my goal is to be a premier yet capital efficient resource to help propel your business forward.

"We worked with Sumin for many years and he was our legal go-to-guy at SendBird. He always followed-up, met in person to offer advice, and delivered regardless of the hour of the day. A five-stars startup lawyer!"

"Sumin was our primary day-to-day attorney for my startup. Typical for a first time founder/CEO, I had tons of questions, and Sumin became a trusted partner to me with great counsel on all the various topics associated with scaling a startup. He was always available, and provided great advice and follow up. I highly recommend him."
