I am a technology lawyer, born and raised in the Silicon Valley, and am co-chair of Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe’s Silicon Valley Technology Transactions Practice. With 20 years of experience focused on technology companies and tech deals, I continue to love working with clients to advise and help them connect the dots on the broad range of issues that apply to their business models in light of the rapid changes in business, technology, and law.
My practice today focuses on make-or-break the company types of deals, and my passion is in helping companies proactively think through their business models in light of the business, technical and legal landscape.
I’m also a mom of two tween/teen children plus a whippet (not to mention wife to my husband, Jeff, who I met and have shared life’s journeys with since our graduation from Palo Alto High School).
