What I do:
I solve legal and business problems for high-growth companies, from founders with an idea (who are typically pre-incorporation) to established later-stage businesses. I assist with setting up a corporate structure that enables fast and flexible growth, and a solid legal basis for future financings and liquidity events. As those companies mature, I typically act as “outside general counsel,” helping companies with varied legal matters such as financings, M&A and public offerings. I offer clients market knowledge on terms and strategies for navigating difficult situations. I also work extensively with investors (angel, seed and VC).
What my clients value:
Responsiveness, efficiency, market knowledge and ability to navigate tricky situations.
