Practice/Organization Description

Technology/contracts/intellectual property/literary lawyer.

I have substantial in-house legal experience at companies involved in entertainment and communications technologies. I focus on business and legal advising, contracts, intellectual property and literary law.

I have negotiated and drafted complex, sophisticated contracts involving technology, licensing, joint ventures, and asset purchases. I've also managed an extensive intellectual property portfolio (trademarks and copyrights), and have handled the prosecution of domestic and international trademarks, software licensing, domain name enforcement, and copyright registrations.

I am a partner at The General Counsel, LLC, a firm that provides cost-effective in-house general counsel services to emerging and mid-sized companies, both public and private. TGC places industry proven, senior level attorneys at the offices of its client companies, on a full or interim basis. This allows the client to access business-savvy, experienced in-house attorneys at a much lower rate than the fees charged by traditional law firms.
