I’ve made a nice little career for myself as a technology lawyer, so far. I've moved from big corporate firms, to a large in-house team, to managing a team at a mid-sized firm, to general counsel of a fast-growing startup, and now I’m building my own practice.

The constant in my career has not been where or how I worked, but who I chose to represent: entrepreneurs, technologists, artists, creatives. I represent the creators.

I’ve noticed something strange after all these years: our society simultaneously worships and demonizes creators, that’s been true for a while. But over the past seven years or so, those most hostile to them have grabbed political power, and they’re starting to use it.

There’s a word I like to borrow from Polish: the inteligencja. They are the tastemakers, the educated, the stewards of their culture. The word has a particular meaning in Poland, but it can be applied differently in different cultures. In one society, the inteligencja might be soldiers and politicians; in another, farmers and priests; another, journalists and academics.
