About me

I primarily work with companies, entrepreneurs, investment banks, venture capital firms, and other investors in corporate and securities matters.  Prior to joining Witherspoon Kelley, I practiced at Fenwick & West LLP, a Silicon Valley-based law firm, where I represented such clients as Cisco Systems, Inc., Handspring, Inc., Intuit, Inc., Macromedia, Inc., Ltd. and VeriSign, Inc., among others.


From public companies to private start-ups, I have represented clients in a broad array of matters. At Witherspoon Kelley, I assist public companies with corporate governance, securities law compliance, general corporate matters, and analyzing and establishing adequate takeover defenses. My work with private, start-up companies includes incorporation and initial capitalization, board fiduciary duties, venture capital financings, license agreements, executive compensation, equity incentive plans, loan facilities, and other business transactions. Additionally, I have extensive experience in merger and acquisition transactions, and in a variety of corporate finance transactions.
