Got questions about how to form your entity? Employment questions? Vendor contracts and management? I've been in that seat. Call to learn from my mistakes and experience.
I've been steeped in consumer finance and bank regulation both as a state and federal regulator, and now as general counsel for a San Francisco-based FinTech company. I've investigated companies on topics ranging from loan origination practices, servicing, and collections. And I know the pains young companies face when they're just trying to "get things right" in a complex regulatory environment.
Operating business lawyer specializing in regulated industries, entity formation, capital raising, and general contract negotiations and drafting.
I have reviewed thousands of resumes in a variety of contexts, from legal interns to executive team members, and everything in between. I have also interviewed nearly 100 candidates in a variety of contexts, including private law practice, government, VC-backed technology startups. I am available for resume-critique sessions as well as interview-coaching for legal or business roles.
