I help startups and emerging growth company CEOs and executive teams achieve their objectives by assisting with sales and vendor agreement negotiations, advising on intellectual property strategy, and avoiding or settling IP or contract disputes.Part of the value I bring is a business-orientation and understanding that comes from over a decade of in house experience, including several VP-level legal and business roles in Silicon Valley and global technology companies. And my experience with high-stakes patent, copyright, and open source disputes and settlements provides me a unique view on risk for technology companies and their customers.I'm passionate about working with startups and technology companies on growing and accelerating revenue, managing risk, and solving problems. I love being a day-to-day sounding board for founders, CEOs, CFOs, and Sales leaders.I'm also passionate about teaching the next generation of lawyers and building apps with emerging legal technology tools.
