Trent Dykes

I have lived and practiced in the startup ecosystem for my entire career – from acting as an in-house counsel of a startup company in the early 2000s to being a technology sector partner at DLA Piper. My passion is to contribute as a lawyer in building software, Internet and other technology-related businesses, locally and internationally.

My work includes negotiating and drafting technology sector M&A, licensing and distribution agreements, venture capital investments, advising in regulatory issues around FinTech, privacy and ecommerce, and so much more. Never has the speed of technological innovation and disruption been faster than what we see today, and never has the scene been more interesting for tech companies and tech lawyers.

Outside of work, I try to find time for family and some exercise. Nordic walking is my favorite!
