Attorney Review

"Karen reviewed contracts for my startup's online competition to engage people around the world in building open source 3D printed rocket engines. This was the first competition of its kind in the world and Karen helped me navigate contracts, IP, safety concerns and regulations. I was impressed by Karen's ability to jump into a new industry and a complex project and provide suggestions and guidance that in the end resulted in a very successful competition."

"I was very impressed by Karen's versatility in getting up to speed across a very broad range of industries and situations. She was able to navigate from clarifying legal indentures of Native American gaming indebtedness to opining on asbestos litigation and its potential impact on a company's valuation. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help interpreting and sorting through legal situations."
