Meet Amy Burkhoff
As a member of a start-up’s legal team, I get to share the entrepreneur’s enthusiasm for turning a great idea into a growing venture. By providing guidance at a pivotal time — just as the business is forming — I can establish a personal relationship with an innovator who is taking an industry to the next level.
