More than 20% of our clients have in-house counsel and use Kohler Law as-needed for overflow support. Our objective is not to displace a client’s big firm (that handles financing, M&A transactions and complex litigation), but to save money on day-to-day legal functions that support a business. For example sales, licensing and commercial agreements, IP, HR/employment, etc.
Our virtual law firm model and low overhead benefits our clients through cost control, responsiveness and access to senior-level attorneys who integrate with your team and ramp up quickly for any type of project.
I founded Kohler Law Group over 20 years ago and the firm has represented 100’s of venture-backed, private, and publicly traded companies. In addition to being involved in the legal field I have real-world business experience as a successful entrepreneur and have founded and exited several technology companies. I also was a restaurateur having been a founding partner at the San Francisco famous restaurant, Sauce.
I spend my time mostly in Las Vegas.During the winter, you’ll catch me skiing and boarding in Tahoe and during the summer you’ll find me mountain biking, sailing in the SF Bay, rock climbing, and wind surfing (and wine tasting).
Short list of some of the companies that I founded: SiteMail was sold to XOOM and I worked with management to take the company public, did a secondary and ultimately selling to NBC. I co-founded Castfire – a video publishing platform for clients such as Google/Next New Networks, CBS Interactive, ESPN/Disney, Comcast, CNET, PBS and NPR stations, and hundreds more – Castfire was purchased by www.wideorbit.com
My passion is solving problems, connecting people, and ensuring that clients are taken care of.

"Demand began using Kohler Law when we were a small start-up and the firm has been instrumental in helping us grow to where we are today. Kohler Law attorneys are highly skilled, work quickly and when we have a ''fire'' to put out, they adjust their schedules and workload to get it done.''
We don't like to spread ourselves too thin so we

hand-selected for their expertise in these areas.
