Monica Zent


Monica Zent, founder of ZentLaw, is an attorney, businesswoman, entrepreneur and a pioneer. When Monica saw a market that was ripe for improvement and in need of healthy competition, she envisioned a new business model. In 2002, Monica re-engineered the law firm as we know it to create ZentLaw. By merging the efficiencies and flexibility of outsourcing with the best attributes of a law firm, ZentLaw offers a better way to practice for attorneys and a winning proposition for clients.

Monica draws on her business background in her practice as a highly skilled drafter and negotiator in the commercial transactions and licensing arenas. She has extensive experience with all types of commercial transactions, government contracting, and intellectual property law and licensing in a wide variety of industries. She is an experienced and versatile attorney advising some of the world's most well-known brands on such matters as their new product launches, key transactions, or e-commerce and social media offerings. Monica has also pioneered the drafting and structure of certain transactions of first impression in the country in such industries as mobile, solar and biotech.

The syndicated "Legal Minute" series that Monica created and hosts affords legal insight for audiences from California to New York, and she is often asked to comment on legal issues for other radio and television programs.

Monica is an entrepreneur, having launched companies in media, real estate and internet verticals. She has actively donated her time and talent to many causes over the years such as the East Palo Alto Community Law Project, California Lawyers for the Arts, and educational initiatives.
