About In My Opinion

In My Opinion was launched in September 2013.  During its first year, IMO included over 45 articles. Originally, IMO covered a wide range of legal topics, including corporate transactions, litigation, sports & entertainment and criminal law.  In January 2015, IMO was relaunched as a Silicon Valley-based blog, covering transactions and lawsuits occurring in or affecting companies based in the Silicon Valley. 

The Deals section covers mergers & acquisitions, private equity, and venture capital transactions involving Silicon Valley-based companies. The Startups section covers news related to Silicon Valley-based startups.  Lastly, the Lawsuits section covers litigation involving Silicon Valley-based companies.

Where possible, each article will highlight the law firms involved in the underlying transaction or lawsuit.

My name is Joe Ferrari and I am a JD/MBA student at Santa Clara University and the exclusive author of In My Opinion. I am a California native and have lived in Silicon Valley my entire life.

I started In My Opinion during my first semester of law school. Prior to law school, I worked for two years at Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy as a litigation case assistant. I’ve spent the last two summers working in the M&A team at Weil Gotshal, where I will join full time as a first year associate in April 2017.

    Great new direction man. Makes sense to focus solely on Silicon Valley. Keep up the good work, it’ll take you where you want to go in your career.
