My primary areas of practice are structuring, negotiating and documenting business and technology transactions, and advising companies on a wide range of day to day corporate and business issues. I have worked in both in-house and large law firm environments, having served as General Counsel of an Internet services provider and as a business and technology attorney for over ten years with one of New Jersey’s largest law firms.

I received a B.A., magna cum laude, from the University of Pennsylvania and a J.D. from the Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, where I was an Associate Editor of the Law Review. My law review note, “Website Development Agreements: A Guide to Planning and Drafting,” was reprinted in Bowne Publishing’s “The Best in Ecommerce Law” and in several CLE publications. I was named as a “Rising Star” by SuperLawyers Magazine. In my free time, I serve as the Managing Editor of , a blog for in-house counsel with over 12,500 subscribers, which was selected as a Top 100 Blawg by the ABA Journal (2008), nominated as a Top Business Law Blog by LexisNexis (2010), and selected as Runner Up for the Best Practice-Specific Blawg in the 2011 and 2013 Blawggie Awards, and which won such awards in 2014 and 2015.

I am a member of the New Brunswick Bar Association and the Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey

President—insurance agency
Stock sale of insurance agency. Geoff guided us the complicated issues associated with the sale and successfully jousted with buyer’s attorneys. He expedited the process seamlessly. We would not hesitate to use him in the future. We are very grateful to have had his expertise.

The Perfect Attorney
Geoff was instrumental in providing counsel on the sale of my business. His attention to detail, thoroughness and professionalism was above and beyond any legal professional I have worked with in over 25-years. Jeff served as corporate counsel for my business and was praised by opposing counsel and their client for his skill and knowledge of the law. I highly recommend Geoff's legal work for both small, mid-size and large corporations. His skill set as general counsel, transactional law and overall legal knowledge is unsurpassed.
