Biography

Kirk Howell has played the roles of business person and business lawyer for almost two decades. Kirk was a management and technology consultant for a decade before becoming an attorney. Kirk worked with clients from start-ups to the Fortune 500 on strategy, process, technology, and change management projects.

After law school, Kirk practiced law in the Business and Finance department of Greenberg Traurig. He represented borrowers and lenders in regulatory and financing matters and licensors and licensees in technology and intellectual property matters, among other general transactional matters. He left Greenberg Traurig in 2011 to become Counsel and Chief Operating Officer of an e-commerce company. In this role, Kirk oversaw all legal matters from contracts and compliance to litigation and employment matters.

Kirk is now Of Counsel to Warshawsky Seltzer, PLLC, the Franchise Law Firm. Kirk focuses his practice on representing franchisors in technology, intellectual property, and general commercial matters as well as representing franchisees in franchise agreement reviews and general commercial matters.
