Madison (Maddie) Shaner excels at corporate and real estate transactions. Her experience in Teach for America, where she taught high school English and world literature, and her time teaching constitutional law and oral advocacy skills to high school students, have given her the skills to turn complex business and real estate transactions into something the rest of us can understand. In her spare time, she enjoys pretending she’s on the most recent season of Great British Bake Off, reading as many books as she can, exploring the world, and getting nostalgic over her time breaking boards and sparring with fellow black belts.
As the founder and managing partner of Milgrom & Daskam, a law firm Jon built from the ground up, Jon’s diverse client base includes companies in tech, insurance, food and beverage, retail, graphic design, and other creative industries. He advises them on general corporate matters from entity structure and formation, securities law compliance, and employment concerns, to protecting their intellectual property. Jon is passionately involved in social stewardship and the non-profit, impact finance and social entrepreneurship sectors and loves spending time in the Colorado wilderness. Much to his wife’s dismay, he recently bought a 1948 Willy’s Jeep that he hopes to restore enough to actually be able to drive one day.
Adam Hubbard counsels clients on how to best develop, protect, manage, and monetize their intellectual property.
