Jake’s practice is to empower organizations working for equitable, long-run economic growth. He serves as outside general counsel to privately held business and nonprofits in a range of industries, including circular fashion, retail and e-commerce, cleantech, green energy and mobility, food and beverage, and industrial safety. His practice emphasizes early-stage financing, intellectual property protection and licensing, and business contracting.

As a strategic partner to organizational leadership, Jake helps facilitate business growth, protect against operational risks, and shape efficient legal structures and outcomes.
