Over more than two decades, Karin has taken a pragmatic approach to commercial transactions, emphasizing the touch appropriate for the size, complexity, and risk profile of the deal in balance with her clients’ policies and preferences, whether an early-stage technology company, venture fund, or Fortune 50 procurement team. Karin has papered thousands of technology transactions, from $68M technology transfer to multi-million, multi-year SaaS transactions, and understands how regulatory frameworks like HIPAA might affect a party’s obligations as part of those transactions. She has served as managing partner of a boutique law firm, as of-counsel for a mid-size Portland law firm, as CEO and in-house counsel for a technology start-up, and as contracted in-house counsel for large corporations.
