Nadia focuses her practice on licensing/commercial contracts, privacy and advertising. She takes pride in helping clients advance business interests practically and creatively. Clients look to her to help buy and sell a variety of services, goods and software and to monetize IP, technology and other assets through licensing, including franchising and other co-ventures. She’s drafted and negotiated a broad range of complex contracts with both national and international reach, relating to both routine and strategic matters.

She counsels businesses on privacy and data security matters with a special focus on HIPAA privacy. Nadia acts as HIPAA privacy adviser both to the firm and clients.

Nadia assists national brands with advertising and digital marketing, sensibly trying to conform cutting edge ideas to legal frameworks that may not have kept pace with innovation.
