excellent coporate lawyer

I've known Rob for many years. He was IGN's ourtside counsel when he worked at Fenwick and took us public. Now that he has his own firm, he was one of the first lawyers I thought of to handle a delicate startup investment negotiation I had recently. His prices are fair, his pedigree is outstanding, I trust him completely, I know he has my back, & he's creative.
