Fred was Paragon's first attorney on-board, and continues to be a huge contributor to the organization. Fred offers significant licensing and technology transactions expertise to Paragon's clients. In 2007, he assisted with in-bound overflow work at Google, tackled a hefty backfill at LeapFrog, and helped VMware close its Q4. Now Fred is off to Thailand for some well-deserved R&R and diving before returning to SF to take on his next Paragon project. Have fun Fred!

Paragon offers innovative, cost-effective solutions for critical in-house legal needs. We recently completed a highly successful internal diligence project for a major internet client. Paragon analyzed hundreds of content license agreements and created a database allowing the client to quickly determine rights and responsibilities under the agreements and easily identify agreements with substantially non-standard terms. The project has enabled the client's in-house team to be more efficient in responding to questions from the product side regarding content, thereby freeing up precious in-house counsel time to focus on getting key deals done. In addition to internal diligence projects, Paragon provides highly experienced and efficient teams to conduct M&A due diligence at a fraction of the cost of traditional firms.
2007 was a good year in the press for Paragon. In our first full year in business, we were featured on the front page of The Recorder and The National Law Journal, The Wall Street Journal Law Blog, Lawyers Weekly, The Miami Herald, and most recently the American Bar Association Journal.
Paragon really helped us in a pinch. They were able to place two talented attorneys onsite on very short notice. Paragon's attorneys meshed really well with our existing team and were able to add value quickly.

In September 2007, Paragon hosted its 1st anniversary party and client appreciation event at supperclubsf. Creme brulee served in ashtrays, strawberry skewers stuck in a mannequin, and fantastic arias being sung from a water tank were just some of the highlights of this incredible evening. Thank you for making our first year a great one!
