Kam assists early-stage, emerging, and established companies, as well as investors, with a variety of corporate and transactional issues.

While pursuing his J.D., Kam gained legal experience as a Summer Associate with Michael Best. Prior to attending law school, he spent several years as an intellectual property assistant for a Chicago-based intellectual property law firm. In these roles, Kam supported attorneys in a wide range of matters, conducted research, prepared and filed documents, produced client reports, and managed client correspondence. Previously, Kam gained initial experience as an intern for an AmLaw 50 law firm.

Kam leverages his prior experience as an entrepreneur to provide practical advice to start-ups. He started his first business venture, DivineLink, Inc., during his tenure in the Davidson Entrepreneurship clinic, to support relations among historically black fraternities and sororities which gave him valuable firsthand insight into the world of venture financing.  He also provided legal services to early stage start-ups as part of the Law and Entrepreneurship Clinic at The University of Wisconsin-Madison.
