I am an attorney in DLA Piper's Northern Virginia office supporting clients throughout the venture capital ecosystem. It is my goal to shepherd my clients through the funding process, from Series Seed to IPO, and enable them to focus their attention and resources on building businesses and companies for the long term.
Why startups? I love being involved at the foundational level of the business process. There is a unique energy that permeates the startup culture that is hard to replicate at other stages of the business lifecycle. The passion that founders bring to the table is something that I enjoy working with and fostering.
