Lawyer licensed in New York and Ontario, Canada. Spent five years in biglaw firms in NYC before going out on my own to work with start ups, entrepreneurs and creative clients. Particular focus on contracts, company structure and IP issues.
I review, draft and advise on contracts relevant to startups, production companies and individuals including operating agreements, employment contracts, independent contractor agreements, terms of service, financing arrangements and purchases and sales. I also help to structure start-up companies for the optimal protection of current and future assets, financing ability and ownership control and to help meet the ultimate goals of the business. With some clients, I effectively perform as virtual in-house counsel, responsible for addressing day to day legal issues and problem solving.
I have worked at two "biglaw" firms in NYC prior to starting my own firm. My business philosophy is to build personal relationships with all my clients based on trust, collaboration and transparency. Most of my clients are in media and entertainment industries, but I work with any clients that need help with their contracts, company structure or intellectual property management.
I am licensed to practice in Ontario, Canada (and to a limited extent, the rest of Canada other than Quebec) and New York.
