How to Train Your Unicorn: Startup Law 101
Two corporate lawyers at Fenwick & West will share their adventures and misadventures working with high- and low- profile tech startups. The discussion will be wide-ranging and include (I) what startup lawyers actually do, (II) how their work can make clients wealthy (spoiler alert: with equity), (III) and the art & science of the CYA email.
Alejandro “Alex” Almodovar is an associate at Fenwick, and a Berkeley Law alumnus, who concentrates his practice on a broad variety of corporate matters to support clients in the high technology and life sciences industries. His practice includes startup counseling, venture capital financings, mergers and acquisitions, securities law compliance and corporate governance.

Doug Sharp is an associate at Fenwick, where he focuses his practice on a variety of corporate matters to support clients in the technology industry.

The BCLT/BTLJ Law & Tech Speaker Series features local practitioners, bringing real world experience and practical legal knowledge to Berkeley Law students.

Lunch is served for students staying for the entire presentation.

Co-sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology and the Berkeley Technology Law Journal. This event is open to current Berkeley Law students, Berkeley Law affiliates and BCLT law firm sponsors only.
