Darlene Dozier  

Ms. Dozier regularly works with senior executives, artists, writers, engineers, marketers, researchers, and top entrepreneurs, structuring and negotiating successful business, strategic, intellectual property, and technology-related contracts. Darlene's legal counsel has helped clients establish hundreds of policies, processes, protections, and agreements to expand nationally, internationally, and to go public. 

Darlene gained her practical knowledge of technology and business by serving as in-house counsel managing the day-to-day legal issues within three venture-backed software and technology companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley. Darlene continues to help client companies and entrepreneurs successfully navigate the challenges and opportunities within the startup and emerging company landscape. She brings years of legal experience overseeing and supporting business development and strategic alliances, delivering practical legal advice from a real-world, strategic business perspective, not simply a legal perspective. 

As a former literary agent with a California-based agency, Darlene continues to support writers, chefs, professors, scientists, and other licensors and licensees on new and old media matters, including publishing, e-learning, and international merchandising agreements. 

With a broad and deep background, Darlene brings a practical understanding of the interplay between law, the Internet, business, entertainment, media, and technology, providing the advice that allows her clients to quickly negotiate through ever-changing legal and business issues. 

Rest assured that your entrepreneurial values and strategic visions are understood and protected, so that you can focus on what you do best…building your company and your dreams.  

"Darlene has provided excellent counsel over a number of years on a variety of matters. What sets her apart from many lawyers is that she has helped to start and build technology companies. She brings a breadth and depth of experience in both law and business development. Darlene thinks like a business person by staying focused on what is best for growth and profitability.
