Jens’ practice focuses on general business and commercial matters, including corporate formation and governance, employment matters, commercial leases, and advisement on entity choices based on his client’s goals.
My mantra to my clients is ‘it is better to be proactive rather than reactive.’ My aim is to foresee and advise my clients on any potential disputes which may arise in the future and craft specific provisions in order to avoid costly litigation.
Jens was born and raised in the diverse city of El Paso, Texas, where he grew up speaking Spanish. Jens chose to complete his undergrad at Trinity University, in San Antonio Texas.
