Key Accomplishments

Entrepreneurship is one of my main passions. I advise entrepreneurs, some in the high-tech space, all of them looking to build businesses and grow their empires. Right now, my primary focus is on their legal matters; ideally, I would like to eventually transition to the business side of things.

Due to client confidentiality, I cannot disclose the names of any of my clients. I've advised them on financings, shareholder agreements, purchase and sale transactions.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Passion, drive, legal know how, some business acumen, a sense of humour and excellent baking skills.
