I have spent more than a decade in the start-up community structuring and negotiating commercial transactions, OEM deals, alliances, inbound and outbound licensing, product development agreements, channel relationships, financings, and M&A transactions. I serve as an inside consultant and de facto general counsel for a small group of venture-backed companies, handling transactional matters, day to day legal affairs, and management of outside counsel doing patent, IP and litigation work, while assuming a broader, hybrid, corporate development role in which I work directly with functional C-level and VP-level personnel in finance, sales, operations, marketing, and technology.
