Prior to starting Schultis Law, Larry spent ten years engaged in IP transaction work as a partner at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman.

Larry first worked as a programmer, then a systems analyst, and finally an IT director for a prestigious law firm. Although the technology has changed since Larry’s early days in IT, his real-world experience in IT project delivery gives him a unique perspective and insight into his clients’ businesses, and enables him to offer a blend of legal experience and business strategy to complement corporate management.
