Who I am and what I can do for you

I’m a corporate lawyer who focuses on technology contracts, as well as software and internet law.

I support innovative companies and business people on matters such as:

  • Drafting and negotiating technology contracts.  These include software license agreements, complex strategic alliances, online marketing and advertising agreements, web and cloud services agreements, independent contractor agreements and more.
  • Providing practical legal advice about software products and internet services. This can cover use of free and open source software, distribution of apps, website terms of use, and privacy and security policies, among others.
  • Forming and maintaining corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs).
  • Other “day to day” legal advice concerning technology products, services and operations.

Why work with me?

I focus on practical business outcomes. Even the best legal advice has little value if you can’t understand it or act on it.

I’m an experienced dealmaker. I have been negotiating technology deals for over 20 years in New York and California, representing a wide variety of clients, from individuals and high technology startup companies to large international corporations.

I have in-house counsel experience. I have held senior in-house legal positions at Amazon.com/Lab126, designers of leading e-readers and tablets, and Intuit Inc., makers of the acclaimed Quicken®, QuickBooks®, and TurboTax® financial software and web services. Lawyers with in-house counsel experience must give practical, actionable advice and use legal resources and budget cost-effectively. That’s what I do.

I’m passionate about innovation. I’ll work to understand your business, so that I can advise you better.

I’m a team player. Whether you need assistance for part of a large project, or a general legal advisor on an outsourced basis, I can participate effectively and efficiently with your team.

My law practice is small by choice. Small groups – whether startups or research groups or seed ventures in large companies – often are the most innovative. I offer flexibility, agility and customized solutions with personal service.
