Managing Member & Principal Attorney

I protect technology startups, small business owners, and entrepreneurs from costly legal pitfalls so they can focus on growing their business. I help my clients avoid the kinds of mistakes that can cause them to go out of business. My goal is to prevent costly litigation as much as possible. A typical client may hire me for: - Entity formation - Restructuring - Mergers - Representation with investors, venture capitalists, and other funding sources - Changes in ownership structure - Setting up stock options - Reviewing and negotiating commercial leases - License agreements - Contracts and other matters With respect to personal interests, I have been producing alternative rock and electronic music for almost 25 years. I have recorded, performed, and collaborated on more than 260 songs with artists from all over the world. Clients get free copies of my music.
