My Native Admission Statement: The life of the law has not been logic, it been experience, as famously said by Justice Wendall Holmes. I have been practicing business and tax law for more than 30 years, representing startups to multi nationals in markets throughout the world, including Silicon Valley, Hollywood, New York City and the midwest. For the past 25 years I have focused on startups, especially international startups entering the US market from China, India, Europe and other areas. We are at the forefront of the legal issues around emerging and important technologies such as agri-tech, blockchain, AR/VR, artificial intelligence and deep learning.
How do you motivate others?:
We have the opportunity in Silicon Valley to help build the next bog thing in many different sectors and technologies. We also are in a unique position to re-create the way law is practiced and legal services are delivered. Many of our lawyers are attracted to our model because of the freedom that it offers them to define the careers and do the kind of law that they want to do.
