After graduating from Duke Law, for six years, I worked at a law firm that is consistently ranked as the best law firm in the Rocky Mountain Region, according to Vault, and as the best litigation firm in the country, according to The American Lawyer. Working with some of the best lawyers in the country and with some of the biggest clients taught me the standards that are required to perform legal services at the absolute highest levels.

Now, working in a boutique practice over the last ten-plus years, I apply those same standards to a wide range of clients. I’ve represented over 500 clients, including startups, small businesses, founders, tech companies, public companies, and even Fortune 50 companies.

Overall, our firm’s practice focuses on business, internet, and tech law. We help clients with a wide variety of business problems, from starting a business to bet-the-company litigation. Many of my most important clients have sought me out for my expertise with respect to web-scraping and data-access legal issues. But I also have deep expertise in all areas of business and corporate legal work, the law of online contracts, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, state computer-law claims, privacy law, copyright, trademark, trade secrets, clickfraud, keyword advertising, non-competition law, securities law, and other areas of internet law.

In my personal life, I’m a sub-3 marathoner and a sub-24-hour finisher at the Leadville 100-Mile Trail Run. So I’m not afraid of big challenges. And though I’m now technically a master’s runner, I can still bust out a decent time at the local 5k. Even though it’s not always the easiest thing to do with my schedule, I still make time to be the head distance coach for the local high school track team.

When I’m not working or running, I also like to play guitar, mandolin, banjo, and harmonica.

I grew up in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, and then spent some time traveling around the world before moving back to Colorado permanently in 2006. After more than a decade living on the Front Range, I then moved to Salida, Colorado, in the Heart of the Rockies. I still come back to Denver and Boulder often to see family and meet with clients and friends.

But the best part of my day is always the time I spend with my wife Monica and my son Eoin.
