I caught my sense of entrepreneurship from my parents; watching them operate their small jewelry business inspired me to start my own business. I keenly felt that spirit and desire to do something on my own, and create something from the ground up, with full knowledge of the amount of sheer effort required. When I started my own fashion business, I learned firsthand how valuable it is to have someone understand your business from a practical perspective, to have that sounding board and a sympathetic ear. Now, I combine my legal skills with my business experience to be that sounding board for my clients and help them succeed.
Outside of work, I love sports of all kinds, from skiing and snowboarding, to surfing, and I currently compete in Brazilian jiujitsu. I enjoy the feeling of challenging myself.
I have experience representing clients in M&A and corporate matters, including reviewing a range of types of contracts and drafting various documents. I enjoy the process of analyzing the contracts and digging into the details of what makes each unique business work, and how best to position clients for future success. I have worked with clients in a range of industries, including media, manufacturing, food and beverage, medical and pharmaceuticals, and financial services.
I represent clients in transactions involving intellectual property assets, including mergers and acquisitions, licensing agreements and development agreements. These may involve all types of intellectual property, including trademarks, patents, copyrights, as well as technology transfers. I also have experience representing clients in data security and privacy matters.
