In my practice, I endeavor to provide a common-sense, business-first approach in the formation and operation of a start-up company. Our goal is that you feel like one of our teammates and that you understand exactly what you will get billed for and how much it will cost. Whether corporate formation documents, equity plans, employment agreements with non-compete, IP assignment, and confidentiality provisions, we are here to help you with these and other areas of need for new companies.

I love working with emerging companies because they look at the world in a new and exciting way. It’s exciting to get to work with the visionaries and founders directly.

Choosing Foley was one of the best professional decisions I ever made. I haven’t created a resume since my first year of law school, and that’s because Foley’s spirit of entrepreneurship and teamwork suit my personality. I get to work with smart, humble people who put the client first.

As a firm, we’ve also worked hard to create an inclusive environment for those who work here and for our clients. We’re working to expand our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion program – I’m proud of what we’ve done so far, and I’m excited to see where we’re going.

Outside the firm, I love spending time with my family, playing golf and hockey, and supporting my beloved University of Michigan in all things.
