We enjoy helping a company grow its business while managing risk. We want to be an integral part of the day to day business team -- a strategic resource and trusted advisor to the owners or management team.
Very broad business, corporate and legal background. In addition to holding many roles as General Counsel, In-House counsel, and Outside General Counsel for companies of all sizes, the attorneys understand the business issues facing companies daily, and the impacts of decisions on legal matters, having been key members of executive teams in addition to holding various corporate business roles (HR, Procurement, Quality, Sales, Founder)
Enable small companies and start-ups to get high quality legal/business services at a reasonable fixed price -- services they may otherwise not be able to afford. Enable companies to have ongoing experienced Outside General Counsel when they are not yet in a position to hire in-house counsel.
I think that is terrific -- all business owners should understand the legal environment they operate in.
I am a broad based, multidimensional and versatile corporate/business attorney who has years of experience as General Counsel, Outside General Counsel and Corporate Counsel for small start-up, medium size, and large companies handling all aspects of the companies' legal work, including contracts and transactions, formation issues, licensing and intellectual property (including trademark, patent and copyright), labor and employment, compliance, risk management and governance.
I enjoy assisting and otherwise helping a company get established, grow its business, comply with applicable laws and regulations, protect its assets (risk management), and keep out of financial and legal trouble.
Part of what makes me successful is that:
--I understand business issues as well as legal ones (In addition to legal operational and corporate governance roles, I have held business roles in HR, procurement, quality and even sales),
--I get to know the company's business and goals, and
--I am adept at identifying potential legal issues and devising the best business solution - not simply the best legal solution.
These traits allow me to become a trusted advisor to the management team, providing valuable perspective and strategic business advice to help advance business goals while mitigating risk.
I have an engineering degree from the University of Colorado and a law degree from the University of Oregon. I am admitted to practice in Colorado and Oregon.
