About me

While my background is in software, intellectual property, real estate and corporate matters, I work on all manner of contracts, including things like hardware manufacturing, international distributor agreements, and cosmetics development and distrubution.


In my free time I enjoy salsa dancing, skiing, chess, and playing with my son and daughter.

  • Eugene H Kim

    It's called "practicing" the law because no one knows everything. Those of us that are smart are good at research, those of us that are lucky have colleagues that have a near encyclopedic knowledge of the law. I'm lucky to know Dakin because he's the encyclopedia. I endorse Dakin without hesitation and look forward to the next time we get to work together.
