About Me

I am a partner on the Private Equity and Venture Capital Team.  I am also a member of the Life Sciences and Renewable Energy Teams.  I concentrate my practice on the representation of venture capital and private debt and equity funds in making and monitoring their investments and buying and selling their portfolio companies.  

I also provide general representation to public and private companies in emerging growth fields, including the biotech, medical device, renewable energy, internet, media and information technology industries.

I advise venture capital, private equity and hedge fund principals on fund formation matters.  Additionally, I have particular expertise advising on cross border mergers and acquisitions, international investments and joint ventures and soft intellectual property issues.

I am a 1999 graduate of the Vanderbilt University School of Law where I served as Managing Editor of the Vanderbilt Law Review.  I received my BA degree in 1995 with majors in History, Religious Studies and Political Science and a minor in philosophy from the University of California, Riverside.
