About Us

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Sebastian and his father built an IT company in 1999. Through this experience, Sebastian fell in love with technology and entrepreneurship.  His dream was to build a business that allowed him the ability to leverage technology to optimize business operations.  After 11 years of ascending the ranks at a large multinational law firm, eventually becoming the head of the tax group, Sebastian was given the opportunity to build out a law firm from the ground up with a Big-4 accounting firm. While the law firm build-out was successful, Sebastian found that his desire to change the way law firms do business went beyond what any established professional services firm was looking for. In October of 2021, Sebastian commenced the build-out of Outsiders.   

Whether you are a start-up, an established business or a charity/NFP, Outsiders will provide you with a partner that you can rely on.  We will give you the legal and strategic advice you need help resolve the problems you face and to help you plan for the future.
