About Me

I advise startups on legal matters as well as their business issues.

I head up Latham’s Emerging Companies Practice, where I focus on helping companies and their investors across technology, life sciences and other growth industries. I represent companies through all stages, and advise on general corporate matters, corporate governance, venture financings, public offerings, securities, as well as mergers and acquisitions. My technology clients include: AdRoll, OpenTable, NetApp, Duolingo and Twitter; my life sciences clients include: Aimmune, Codexis and Omniome. In other growth areas, I advise Hyperloop, Impossible Foods and Soraa. On the venture capital side, my clients include: 8VC, Andreessen Horowitz and Eclipse Ventures. The clients I work with value that I ran a venture-backed technology company, as it gave me great insight into the legal issues they face. My clients paid me the greatest compliment when I was selected as The Recorder’s most trusted advisor to startups in 2016.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family (including my golden retriever), eating Italian food and running.
