Not every transaction issue, deal point or contract provision demands a purely legal solution. Adam understands this. His broad range of experience – both in private practice and in-house - allows him to interpret and help clients navigate the inflection point where legal considerations blend with commercial concerns. Adam has practiced law for over 30 years in a variety of law firm and business settings, including large national law firms, small transactional boutiques and general counsel roles for both a publicly traded enterprise software company and an early stage Internet company (who remembers the dot-com bubble?). He has worked directly with all levels of business organizations – from the board room to founders, management teams, and finance, sales, development and human resources departments.
An avid hiker, Adam has summited Mt. Shasta (14,179 ft.) and Mt. Whitney (14,505 ft.) and hiked the West Highland Way (Glasgow to Fort William) and the Haute Route (Mr. Blanc to the Matterhorn). A long hike shares many characteristics with a commercial transaction – an agreed upon destination, a carefully planned route, obstacles that require solutions and simply putting one foot in front of the other to get to the finish. There are many, many hikes that Adam would like to experience. And many, many deals he would like to close.
Adam is currently licensed to practice law in the State of Texas and the State of California.
