Year that you entered your current field? 2013
How did you get your start in your current field?
As a summer associate at DLA Piper in Palo Alto, I was assigned to an office near several real estate partners. I greatly enjoyed the people in the group and accepted real estate as my permanent placement when I returned full time after graduating law school. I suppose the adage is true–three things matter in property: location, location, location!
How do you contribute to the future of your industry?
I am focusing on technology and how it will impact the practice of real estate law in the future. Many fields of law, real estate included, have been slower to adopt modern technology (like e-signatures). By focusing on how to intelligently and efficiently incorporate new technology into my practice, I hope to better serve my clients and push the industry forward.
Who or what do you attribute to your success?
The attorneys I work with at Olshan have proven to be terrific mentors and teachers. I have learned a huge body of knowledge under their tutelage. Their support, coupled with attention to detail, has greatly contributed to my success throughout my years as a junior associate and has propelled me forward as a mid-level.
