Meet Rogoway Law Group's Hilary St. Jean, one of North Bay Business Journal's 2019 Forty Under 40
Notable Quote: I lead business deals in the multiple millions and billions of dollars for cutting-edge companies. I worked in promoter management on the Rolling Stones world tour.
Other things about me...
Greatest professional challenge:
I worked on a deal in the hundreds of millions of dollars that required working approximately 18-20 hours per day for two months straight. The volume of work and lack of sleep and necessity for attention to detail was intense but exciting and challenging. We had a very happy client when the deal closed.
Single most important event in your professional life in the last 12 months:
Changing jobs to come to Rogoway Law Group is the most significant move I’ve made recently (about a year ago). Moving to Sonoma County from Silicon Valley was amazing: It’s a beautiful place to live and breathe. My scope of work is dynamic, cutting-edge and interesting. I now work frequently with cannabis companies in addition to representing technology businesses and other clients. This is challenging and fascinating. With cannabis industry work we have the ability to pave the road in a culture shift that comes around once in a lifetime.
Typical day at the office
Work, work, work! Calls, meetings, business deal discussions, financings, mergers and acquisitions, entity formation.

What does your mom or dad brag most about you?
My mom likes to tell people I toured with and worked for the Stones. She has a harder time recapping my legal work.
