Coming out of law school, I knew I wanted to work with the entrepreneurs and investors in the startup and venture capital community – the people that are shaping our global economy as we enter the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. I am an entrepreneurially-minded, creative person by nature, and I saw myself maturing into an enterprising, creative lawyer and working with them (and more importantly, alongside entrepreneurs and innovators). I wanted to be more than just a legal scribe for my clients; I wanted to truly understand my clients’ industry/technology sector and their specific businesses, markets, solutions, strategies and competitive landscape in order to be the most effective counselor and sounding board for them. Even more, I wanted to be a problem solver and opportunity creator for my clients. And I felt that I could only truly “walk the walk” with a team intent on disrupting the status quo and bringing true innovation to the legal marketplace. I had no idea, though, just how difficult it would be to find a group with a real presence in the space and whose values, customs and culture fit with the direction in which I, and others, saw the industry trending.
