Candace brings substantial experience advising entrepreneurs and growth-oriented companies, particularly those in highly regulated industries, on an array of transactional, corporate governance, compliance and commercial matters. Candace served as Senior Counsel to Kickstarter, PBC, a global crowdfunding platform and one of the first and most-well-known public benefit corporations. There she developed a detailed understanding of the complexity, pace and pressure in-house legal teams face. In addition to managing all aspects of Kickstarter’s day-to-day legal and compliance work around the world, Candace served as a member of the company’s senior team and supported its technical and creative teams at all stages of product development. Prior to joining Outside GC, Candace led the transactional, corporate, employment and privacy practices at the California law firm, Brand and Branch, LLP. She routinely advised financial services, logistics, cannabis and nutritional supplement companies on complex commercial agreements, licensing arrangements, regulatory compliance matters, early-stage financing and internal policy development. A graduate of NYU Law School, Candace began her legal career at Bingham McCutchen LLP, where she focused on corporate and transactional work. Later, she moved with her practice group to another international firm, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP. Outside of her job, Candace has engaged in extensive pro bono work, focused on the support of individual working artists and arts initiatives, advice to startups and small businesses, and partnerships with non-profits providing access to legal resources in underserved communities. In her free time, she enjoys playing tennis and basketball and baking with her family.
