Outside General Counsel & Attorney for Tech Companies
Trusted by some of the top names in tech.


Clients and Representative Transactions

When you work in tech,
you want an attorney who gets tech.

For the past 20 years, Mike Kimball has worked on deals and legal issues for companies of all sizes—from start ups to multi-nationals. Mike is well versed in the tech space, from software, med-tech and “big data” to social media and IoT. He knows what it takes to create and execute structures and agreements to foster fast growth. After all, tech is about more than jeans and sneakers, it’s about being creative and finding ways to close deals that fuel possibilities, not shut them down.

Mike launched his legal practice in 2007, working with companies like Google, Cubic, Facebook, Social+Capital, AppNexus, Salesforce, A16Z and Uber.

Prior to that, Mike was a senior member of the Yahoo! legal team, negotiating many of the company’s technology deals and partner alliances. He’s served as the chief legal counsel for start-ups like Krux Digital (acquired by Salesforce), the first licensing attorney at Commerce One (back in the day), and has supported multi-national transactions with the likes of Eurostar, Red Bull, Major League Baseball, NASDAQ, Goldman Sachs, Liveramp, Amazon and NASCAR.

Before all of that, Mike served as a naval officer on the nuclear attack submarine USS William H. Bates (SSN-680), and as a staff instructor at the Naval Nuclear Training Unit in Idaho Falls, ID.

Outside of work, Mike enjoys skiing, flying, cycling, restoring an Alfa Romeo and spending time with his two grown children and yellow lab, Maggie, as often as possible.
