As an Assistant General Counsel for Microsoft I lead Microsoft’s legal support function to its US Central Region Enterprise & Partner Group team. That team consists of approximately 1,000 sales, marketing, services and technical professionals who serve Microsoft’s large enterprise customers across 18 states, 6 Microsoft districts and drive Billions of dollars in revenue for Microsoft. Prior to joining Microsoft I worked in various in-house legal roles for IBM and Accenture.
I have over 20 years of legal experience – all in-house with leading Information Technology providers. My primary expertise includes shaping and negotiating a wide range of sophisticated IT contracts with third parties such as cloud computing, on-premises licensing, business process outsourcing, consulting services and product support arrangements. In addition, I have substantial expertise in the areas of cybersecurity, privacy, compliance & ethics, intellectual property, dispute resolution, employment law and antitrust law.
I’m an enthusiastic user of social media and have a passion for improving diversity in the legal profession and leveraging technology to achieve more. I have spoken extensively at legal events/conferences on a variety of topics and I have had numerous articles published by third parties both in print media and online.
