About
Hi and welcome. I've been a business attorney for 46 years, 39 of them in Silicon Valley. I've represented companies in all industries, but my main target now is helping technology companies.

I’m admitted in California & Texas, but since I don’t do litigation, I also have clients around the US and in Europe.

My 1st Super Power is contracts -- MSA, SaaS, PaaS, Stacked SaaS, IP license (SoC, ASIC, FPGA etc.), website docs, etc.

My 2nd Super Power is helping my clients as outside general counsel with advice in labor law, Seed and Series A investment deals, trademarks and just putting the whole picture together with some legal glue.

When I combine these skills with my experience in Silicon Valley I'm most helpful as outside general counsel to technology oriented companies.

Finally, quoting from one of my UpCounsel reviews, I guide clients "from what I said I wanted to what I actually needed."

"Nina was an absolute dream to work with. She's incredibly efficient with her time, and gets a lot done at rapid pace, with attention to detail. I asked Nina to review an Independent Contractor agreement, which was supplied by a huge multinational firm that does not usually engage IC, so there were a number of clauses that gave me pause. Nina swiftly replied to my job here on UpCounsel and we had it all reviewed, accepted and turned around with minor push-back from the other Party (which I felt very comfortable dealing with, since Nina prepped me so well)."
