Tell us a bit about your legal practice. What type of work do you focus on?

I started Lichy Law in October 2017 after a 6 year stint in Biglaw and then 5 years as the co-founder and CEO of a women’s accessories brand in NYC.  I was originally going to be a “Fashion Law Firm” but quickly realized that my background and skill set could offer value far beyond the limited field of fashion-related legal matters and so it naturally transitioned to a Start Up firm.  I like to think of Lichy Law as a Start Up for Start Ups. The type of work we focus on is pretty much anything that new and budding entrepreneurs need help with.
