Season 4, Episode 9: Colombo’s Four “C”s of Education in Law with Beth Colombo

Season #4 Episode #9

Elizabeth A. Colombo ("Beth") is from Ridgewood, New Jersey, but lives in sunny Sarasota, Florida.

Beth earned her B.A., magna cum laude, in Film, Television, and Theatre from The University of Notre Dame and her J.D., cum laude, from Quinnipiac University School of Law.

With 15 years of legal experience and a decade of in-house experience, Beth was corporate counsel for Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. and senior associate, cyber risk for Kroll.

Beth currently serves as senior legal counsel at Vendavo, Inc., working cross-functionally with the relevant business teams and stakeholders, providing legal advice on a broad range of topics and guiding the business on legal compliance with a particular focus on drafting, managing, and negotiating client and vendor contracts of moderate-to-high complexity from the bid phase through contract execution, including software licensing and SaaS-specific provisions, as well as matters related to contractual liability and risk-shifting provisions, data privacy, intellectual property, and products.

When not working for Vendavo, Beth teaches business law for Southern New Hampshire University and sits on the Board of her all-girls Catholic high school in Washington Township, New Jersey, Immaculate Heart Academy.

On a personal level, Beth enjoys spending time with loved ones and swimming, writing, dancing, dining out, and television! Beth moved to Sarasota, in part, because she loves the beach, sunsets, birds, manatees, and other wildlife!

As attorneys, we are often continual learners. Thus, it makes sense that we can utilize lessons learned from education to enhance our practice of law.

She will explore skills and abilities utilized in education as a means to excel in your legal career. Join Beth as she discusses her Four “C”s of Education in Law: Communication, Counsel, Creativity, and Compassion.
