Intellectual Property and Technology Lawyer

SaaS, e-Commerce, and Web & Mobile App businesses have unique risks for their founders and shareholders. Intellectual property (Yes, including source code), corporate structures & shareholdings, consumer protection, confidential information, cybersecurity and privacy are just several areas that carry risk.

Having a lawyer that understands your technology is critical. I have owned, managed, and founded web development & hosting companies before becoming a lawyer 12 years ago. My skills and experience allow me to view my clients’ SaaS and e-Commerce businesses from the perspective of a director, a shareholder, an employee, a web developer, and a lawyer. 

This ‘360 degree tech business perspective’ means I can better assist you, as I understand your business model, the technology, the risks, and the opportunities.

There is more to business than law. 

Contact me today to get a better perspective without all the legal jargon.
