Galia is the founding partner of Aharoni Business Law, PC. At ABL, Galia focuses on business formation, independent contractor issues, and minimizing liability, but she enjoys working with small businesses on all of their business, employment, and intellectual property needs. She loves business law because she gets to learn about businesses and industries she never would have learned about otherwise, and by doing so is able to help other entrepreneurs fulfill their own dreams.
Galia is a born entrepreneur, and loves the thrill of growing her own business as much as she loves helping others grow their own.
Galia is a published author on intellectual property issues surrounding moral rights, and regularly speaks throughout California on a variety of legal and business issues for both lawyers and other entrepreneurs. One of her favorite things about practicing law is the collaborative process of educating people about business and the law so they’re empowered to succeed by preventing problems before they happen.
Galia graduated from Tulane University School of Law with a certificate in environmental law and a sub-focus on intellectual property, and she currently has licenses to practice law in both California and Louisiana. Prior to founding ABL, Galia was a founding partner of a Bay Area-based multi-lawyer business law firm, practiced law at private law firms in both New Orleans and Oakland, and worked as a business development attorney at a large legal publisher in Northern California. She’s also done stints as a professional proofreader/editor and a dogsitter, but the latter was mostly just an excuse to hang out with other people’s dogs.
When not working, she can be found coffee-shop hopping, reading, taking long walks with her fiancé, Mike, travelilng, or collecting hobbies. A few of her favorite hobbies so far include belly dancing, glass flameworking, and tai chi.
