Makan is a former Assistant Deputy Attorney General of the United States for Antitrust Enforcement, former Chief Counsel and Staff Director of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee, and partner at Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber and Scheck.
Makan has always had the entrepreneurial bug. Years ago, he received a speeding ticket in California. On the back of the ticket, he was invited to contest the ticket by writing to the court instead of having to appear in person. Makan thought, if we can handle traffic cases on papers, why can’t we handle other court cases online? From that idea and brainstorming with Will, the idea for Preconcile was born.
Makan has an undergraduate degree from UCLA, a masters in science from Johns Hopkins University [MORE]
and a law degree from George Washington University. He is one of the few lawyers in America who creatively finds solutions rather than identifying problems.
