I am a corporate and securities attorney who represents emerging growth companies and the investors in such companies. My practice focuses on venture capital financings, mergers and acquisitions and general corporate and securities law. My clients are individual entrepreneurs, early stage, venture-backed and public companies and venture capital investors. I have done numerous initial and secondary public offerings and hundreds of seed and venture financings. I also advise on corporate and securities law compliance related to emerging financing trends, among them incubation, accelerator and spinout strategies and convertible securities offerings, such as SAFEs. I enjoy helping startup companies navigate their way into successful enterprises.
On a personal level, I am a Northwest native and went to the University of Washington for both undergraduate and law school. I am a former University of Washington football player (quarterback, 1995-99). I find an accurate capitalization table cathartic. This, along with my finance background and Excel skills, makes me well-suited for my career as a corporate attorney.
