Aggressively Creative Lawyering

What I Do

Startup Advice

Startup Advice

I provide counsel to founders and startup companies regarding typical legal issues confronted by early-stage companies, including entity choice, founders' matters, positioning for later stage investments and complying with existing non-competes and confidentiality agreements.
M&A Transactions

M&A Transactions

I help buyers and sellers to navigate the dynamic and complex M&A process and achieve quality results across a wide variety of industries. I provide legal advice on all matters to be addressed by companies seeking to acquire or sell, merge, or restructure, and have a large network of outside experts to draw on in tax and other specialized areas.
Securities and Investments

Securities and Investments

I regularly represent startups seeking capital, as well as angel and other investors contemplating investments in startups and other early stage companies, in structuring, negotiating and closing such investments and complying with federal and state securities laws and other regulatory issues.
General Counsel Services

General Counsel Services

My general counsel services provide you with a partner who can answer your nagging legal questions, brainstorm with you on your legal and business questions and review all your contracts, big and small, in a cost-effective way that works for you and your business.   And I can perform them on-site or remotely, as you choose.

About me

I formed my firm in 2007 after more than 20 years of legal practice in several large international law firms and experience as co-founder and director and acting general counsel of several startups and technology companies.  Having seen from both sides the issues involved for large law firms in providing quality services to startups  on a budget that is manageable for those startups - which largely result in giving young, inexperienced associates most of the responsibility for drafting agreements and interfacing with founders - I wanted to be able to provide high-quality representation to startups and other small businesses, particularly those with a socially responsible focus, in a cost-effective and efficient manner.  

My practice combines the experience and training of an international law firm partner with the inside knowledge of a general counsel and the business acumen of a company director and startup co-founder, all at rates less than those of a large firm junior associate.
