    DIFFERENT. COMPETENT.

About Me

I am Veronica Besmer, the firm's founding attorney. I have been practicing law for many years as both a litigator and transactional attorney, specializing in corporate and intellectual property law. Before setting out solo, I worked as the sole counsel at an online marketing company and was responsible for all legal matters . Before that, I practiced law at a large IP firm in San Francisco, where I represented clients ranging from small businesses to Fortune 100 companies.

Prior to entering the field of law, I acquired a decade of business experience at various technology start-ups. My career began in private banking in Switzerland, where I am originally from. Besides English, I speak German and Czech. I am active in the local legal community and as time permits, am engaged in various nonprofit work.
