Prior to founding his own practice, Sebastian spent seven years working as an employer-side lawyer at large law firms, including Goodwin Procter and Dewey & LeBoeuf.

He also worked on hundreds of M&A transactions and developed a special expertise advising on the employment law issues attendant to them.
In his current practice, Sebastian continues to provide general employment law advice to a handful of startup clients and individuals seeking help negotiating employment, separation and non-compete agreements are frequently referred to him by his prior clients and other lawyers. Sebastian also maintains an Of Counsel position at APB Law, a boutique M&A law firm in Palo Alto (http://www.apblegal.com/about/).
