"I am a legal advisor to companies that provide information or services over the Web. They come to me because they need a contract to establish a relationship with a partner, licensor/licensee, distributor or customer. They look to me for insight, speed and economy in getting a deal done because I've worked on hundreds of online services deals for companies such as newspapers, software services and database suppliers."
