Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP
Palo Alto, CA
I serve as outside corporate counsel for start-up and emerging growth corporations, handling all of their legal matters, and as outside counsel for large corporations having their own in-house legal staff, handling select transactions.
I assist company management with legal issues involved in forming and financing their business and obtaining liquidity for their stock, selling (or licensing) their products and services through various channels of distribution, protecting and profiting from their intellectual property, compensating their employees and executives, and interfacing with their boards of directors and shareholders.
In terms of legal practice areas, my 25 plus years of experience covers securities law; corporation, limited liability company, and partnership law; tax law; antitrust law; commercial (UCC) transactions law; international law; and intellectual property law (especially technology transfer and licensing).
My clients are mostly high technology and consumer product companies. They include companies that develop, manufacture, and/or distribute computer hardware and software, semiconductors, lasers, telecommunications, chemical products, Internet/ASP, and solar energy products.
