UT-Austin B.A. (Economics, Philosophy), Harvard Law J.D. I’m a corporate and venture capital attorney in the Technology and Emerging Companies Group of Andrews Kurth‘s Austin office, where I represent early-stage companies, investors, and entrepreneurs across a variety of tech-focused industries – my kind of people. I’m one of those lucky lawyers who practices exactly what he wanted to, never wears a coat or tie, and finds his clients incredibly interesting to work with. Plus I have a pretty sweet view of Lady Bird Lake from my office.
As a techie fascinated by new business models, my goal is to be a source of insight for startups on business, finance, and even product strategy, not just a legal paper-pusher. I keep a stash of startup law and finance related articles here for entrepreneurs to educate themselves without being on the clock. Feel free to share.
And acting as my firm’s informal legal technologist, I keep up-to-speed on the latest tech that allows our firm to efficiently serve startups at all development stages: from the single guy with an app who just needs some template contracts, to the venture-backed company going public. I write about legal tech frequently on this blog.
Experienced early-stage corporate and venture capital lawyers are an essential part of any startup ecosystem. I consider myself incredibly lucky to be part of the only full-service, Texas-based law firm supporting Austin’s (and Texas’) entrepreneurs, VCs, and overall tech economy on a serious level.
