Dani Brennan

Senior Corporate Counsel

I went to law school with all these hopes and dreams of becoming some big shot lawyer, and I remember telling myself, “I can handle it, I’ll thrive at a big firm and I’ll definitely be a lifer!”  I joined Sheppard Mullin’s IP practice group and technology team when I graduated, and while I absolutely loved my team and the work I was doing, I knew I was in need of a job with more of a focus on the bigger picture. I left to work at GoPro, and then a few other companies as in-house counsel, and despite achieving “that work-life balance thing,” I still felt like there was something more that I needed out of my career.  Enter Terrain Legal – a unique team something of a law firm setup with an in-house dynamic, and a huge focus not only on stimulating and challenging work, but also environmental and world causes.

At Terrain, I am able to continue cultivating my work experience supporting growing technology companies, but I am also encouraged and empowered to continue living my life, feeding my passions, and most importantly, taking action toward environmental and charitable causes that really resonate with me.  I am passionate about intellectually stimulating work; I am passionate about snowboarding, backpacking and the outdoors; I am passionate about traveling the globe to experience different cultures and to try to determine how I might be able to make a difference for others.Terrain Legal enables me to life my life and build my career at the intersection of all of these things.
