Kathy O’Sullivan’s practice at Sycamore Legal® focuses on technology transactions and related privacy issues.
An experienced transactional attorney, Kathy joined Sycamore Legal® following twenty years as corporate counsel with a San Francisco-based trade association. Her in-house experience included drafting and negotiating software agreements and other IT contracts, among a wide range of other services. Kathy’s prior legal experience also included litigation and advice while at the San Francisco law firm Lillick & Charles LLP (since merged into Nixon Peabody LLP), and at the Berkeley City Attorney’s Office.
Kathy leverages her varied background to provide Sycamore Legal® clients with transactional services and advice at a high, yet practical level. She is well familiar with litigation, and strives to avoid it in her deals.
Kathy earned her Juris Doctor with honors from UCLA School of Law. A New York transplant, she earned her Bachelor of Arts with honors from the State University of New York at Albany. Recognizing the rapidly shifting landscape of personal data privacy, between 2020-2022 Kathy earned Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) credentials from the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP): CIPP/US (United States) and CIPP/E (Europe). These credentials are recognized by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) under the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 17024: 2012.
