    Working with startups is incredibly exciting. Not only does it provide a window into the amazing technology and businesses being created today but it allows me to work with brilliant people.

    Launch Moment: The most satisfying experiences I have had working with startups is working with teams from incorporation to a sale or an IPO—through thick and thin. As a lawyer there is no other situation I have been involved in that has allowed me to develop such a close working relationship with my clients.

    Daily Reads: The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and TechCrunch

    Favorite Books: I love to read books and am now 100% digital.

    Off the Clock: My favorite times are just hanging out with my wife and daughters. I also like to get outside—in the winter it's snowboarding, and in the summer it's soccer, sailing and golf. I'm also a big Giants fan.
