SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - June 08, 2016) - Silicon Legal Strategy today announced that James Alonso has joined the firm as an associate in its San Francisco office. This marks the second new hire for the firm in the last month.

James helps startups navigate through the incorporation and funding processes, as well as manage day-to-day issues like negotiating commercial contracts and licenses. Before joining Silicon Legal, James practiced at the Silicon Valley office of Gunderson Dettmer, where he advised over one hundred emerging technology companies and investors in connection with venture capital financings, M&A transactions and corporate governance matters. Most recently, James founded his own startup, Docasaurus provides document automation software for corporate attorneys and is used by lawyers across the country to form and finance companies.

James received his B.A. in Biochemistry from UC Berkeley and his J.D. from Columbia Law School.

"Silicon Legal is able to take care of startups in a way that other firms just can't match," said Alonso. "Their focus on scalable service is shown by how fast the firm itself is growing while continuing to delight its clients. I'm feeling very fortunate to be a part of this team and look forward to working with their incredible client base."

"We're very excited to welcome James to Silicon Legal Strategy. We feel that our clients will benefit immensely from the targeted legal and business experience that James brings with him," said Andre Gharakhanian, partner at Silicon Legal Strategy. "Silicon Legal just continues to attract top tier talent from other, larger firms. Having recently moved into a new, larger office space in San Francisco's SOMA district, we are excited to continue growing our headcount in the second half of 2016."
