      • After 30+ years advising many companies as outside legal counsel, from start-ups to mature public companies, and working 2+ years as Chief Legal Officer of DayJet Corporation, an early-stage on-demand regional airline, Bill recognized that many exciting companies need an in-house General Counsel on their executive management team before it is cost-effective to hire one full-time.
