Meet Kristin, a multi-tasking dynamo and tech savvy business advisor.
Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with her.
With almost 20 years in practice, Kristin has always had a passion for working with tech startups and business owners. With her familiarity with the industry—from attending law school in San Francisco specifically so she could be near Silicon Valley during the Dot Com boom, to working with software engineers—Kristin has the insight to break down transactions and legal issues into smaller modules, steps and action plans more easily understood by non-lawyers. She then takes this approach to guide clients through private offerings, acquisitions and various other complex transactions throughout the business life-cycle.
Kristin knows the challenges of starting and operating new businesses. After 14 years in corporate law, she made the leap to start her own firm where she operated a boutique business law practice for startups and small businesses while developing an innovative new business model and client fee structure. As a small business owner, she’s lived the experience, and can advise entrepreneurs throughout the process with thoughtful, seasoned counsel and put them on the path to success.
Kristin is also passionate about pro bono work and fundraising efforts, whether she’s providing legal counsel for the Center for Women & Enterprise or rappelling down one of the tallest buildings in New Hampshire for the United Way, she’s willing to go the distance for her community. She has served on the Board of Directors for the United Way of Greater Nashua, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Greater Nashua and the New Hampshire Women’s Bar Association. She currently serves as the Board Chair of the Nashua Innovation Center.
But that’s not all. Kristin is also very experienced in:
- Trademarks and copyright
- Entity formation
- Debt and equity financing
- Data privacy
- Executive compensation
In her former life, Kristin was:
- Principal and founder of her own firm, Millyard Tech Law
- A corporate attorney at a larger Manchester law firm
- A corporate attorney at a large Boston law firm
When Kristin isn’t working, she is…
Spending time with her family, reading, cooking, renovating her historic home and trying to keep her pantry filled to satisfy an army of regularly invading teenagers.
