Nick Leibham is a partner in the firm’s Washington, D.C. and Orange County offices. Nick is part of the innovation law and policy group and spearheads the emerging technologies practice within the group, which includes a multi-disciplinary portfolio of clients and matters. He principally advises clients that have a substantial interest in the federal government as a market place. This includes aspects of federal funding and business development initiatives, procurement, public-private partnerships, regulatory matters and rule makings, tax issues, and company wind-downs where the federal government is a creditor/stakeholder. Nick also acts as outside general counsel to several start-up companies and trade associations, where his work runs the gamut from board room governance and vendor agreements to HR matters. Nick is also a core part of the firm’s political law group, where he brings two decades of policy/political experience to the table on behalf of his clients.

Before joining the firm, Nick was a prosecutor on behalf of the State of California and was also in private practice, where he counseled small business clients on a wide range of matters (e.g., HR, tax/audit reporting, real/personal property, general corporate, among other matters). Nick worked as a senior aide to Rep. Gary Ackerman (NY) and Rep. Neil Abercrombie (HI) in the U.S. House of Representatives and was also a Western Regional Director for the Democratic National Committee in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s.
