While in law school, Lee founded the Intellectual Property Society and was the Managing Editor for the law journal. Lee currently teaches Data Privacy and Data Security classes in law school.
Lee’s legal experience is very diverse and enables him to serve his clients with years of professional experience in each area under his belt. For example, Lee has served as a manager in the legal department of a pharmaceutical company; an attorney in a large, nation-wide law firm; both a prosecuting and defense civil litigation attorney; a government attorney; and most recently a law professor. His experience includes intellectual property; health-related benefits; fast track litigation; employment law; tax law; complex licenses, contracts and agreements; data privacy and data security; and even writing judicial decisions.
Early in his career, Lee realized his goal was to serve clients on a personal level to the extent that his expertise would positively affect people on a personal level, as opposed to a removed and impersonal legal service. Lee focuses on small to mid-sized technology companies due to his technical background the enjoyment of working closely with his clients to craft a tailored solution to each challenge. The bond of trust Lee established with his clients is paramount in his business method to maintain the role of the “go-to guy” for his clients needs.
