Speaking on Stage

Client References

Sharp as a whip, yet humble. High integrity.

I've worked with Chip now for 17 years, since my first startup in 1997. He's hard working, knows technology law from the bottom-up and the top-down. Keeps it simple and straight, yet can deal with very complex issues. I have recommended him to many companies, and continue to recommend him. Alex Eckelberry, President GFI Software (formerly Sunbelt Software).

The Best

Chip is a no-nonsense attorney that helped us during an $11M forward triangular merger and negotiated a large cash component. He has a Colombo-style inquisitiveness that gets to the bottom of every deal. Great to have him on your side. Klaus Obermeier PhD, CEO, Iotronics Corporation

Best I've worked with in my 30 years!

I've worked with many attorneys over 30+ years in the software and technology business and overall Chip is the best. He is expert in his knowledge of software contracts and my trusted counsel not only helping us close business, but also in ensure we have the knowledge needed to manage and develop our company according to our needs and desires. Chip does this not by simply offering "data," but taking the time to know and to understand us. Therefore he offers us more than advice, it is wisdom. Chip is a key part of my advisory team and I look forward to working with him for many years (and if necessary many companies) into the future. Keith Okano, President, Bridgeway Software, Inc.

Software license agreements / Intellectual property

I have known Chip for several years. He has helped our companies with developing our Software License Agreements, consulted with us on various matters when customers want to change the Agreement and other various matters regarding our Intellectual Property. Chip gets right to the point and has a deep understanding of business issues, is very practical and does not complicate things. He is a joy to work with and I highly recommend him. Tom Johnson, President, Papersoft, Inc.
