Me in a minute
I'm at my best when helping tech companies to push the boundaries
My clients are often market disruptors with the potential to grow extremely quickly. They are constantly pushing the limits and expect their lawyers to do the same. As someone that likes to do things differently (and to prove doubters wrong), the tech sector is a natural fit.
I enjoy the challenge of needing to act at lightning speed, and thrive when clients require non-traditional lawyering. I also love helping innovators that do not fear of failure to unlock significant new market opportunities.
