Jan Michael Roos
Jan’s background in business and commercial litigation gives him a unique perspective on how start-ups and businesses can organize in the present, and plan for the future. Having the right operating agreement, equity structure, and bylaws in place are essential for your business, but knowing how to protect your assets and ideas is equally important.
In an ideal world, your business experiences strong, steady growth, without challenge or disruption. The reality, however, is that many businesses encounter conflict, whether internal or external, that requires the expertise and advocacy of legal counsel. Jan’s years of advisory experience for high-growth companies allow him to accurately assess client needs and design effective strategies for positive resolution.
Prior to serving start-up and business clients in the greater Sacramento community, Jan worked for a prominent civil litigation firm in the San Francisco Bay Area. His penchant for creative legal analysis, aggressive advocacy, and attention to detail result in successful outcomes for clients pursuing legal recourse and for those defending their position.
Jan sits on the board of StartupSac - a nonprofit dedicated to connecting and supporting innovative entrepreneurs. Jan also serves on the Executive Committee of the Schwartz-Levi Chapter of the American Inns of Court and is a member of the Sacramento County Bar Association, the American Bar Association, and the Business Law Section of the SCBA.
Jan graduated Order of Barristers from UC Davis, King Hall School of Law where he served on the Moot Court Board and Trial Practice Honors Board. Jan was named Top Oral Advocate in the regional rounds of the 2011-2012 National Moot Court Competition, presented by the American College of Trial Lawyers.
