I'm a business lawyer who codes.
Though my background is as a software developer, I work with clients in finTech, telemedicine, eCommerce, fashion, clients who are broker dealers and registered investment advisers, construction firms, online publishers, medical practices and a wide variety of online and brick-and-mortar businesses.
My representation of technology clients has covered finTech, edTech, healthTech, eCommerce, internet-of-things, cloud products, mobile software, enterprise SaaS, social media, photo-sharing, eDiscovery and more. As a former software developer who tries to keep his skills current (now primarily in Node) I am able to bring something ‘extra’ to the software matters under my representation.
In addition, I have represented clients in financial services, publishing, event production, logistics, energy infrastructure, fashion, design, construction, medicine and a wide variety of online and brick-and-mortar businesses.
Before private practice, I was in-house counsel for a group of tech-startups in downtown Manhattan, all of which employed Agile and TDD. As a result, I have particularly deep experience working with open source components, integrating new software into enterprise environments, ensuring that software meets regulatory requirements (including financial regulations and HIPAA) and helping developers write and understand complex API, sandbox, SaaS, PaaS and VAR agreements.
Feel free to get in touch.
