As an attorney, I regularly represent venture capital and private equity funds, emerging growth companies, and other investors in private securities markets. It's a fast paced practice and I'm happy to say that I love it - I love working with investors and entrepreneurs and knowing that our work really is creating jobs and enhancing our economy (sounds cheesy, but its true).
My practice focuses on fund formation and administration, securities offerings, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate law. My clients are venture capital and private equity funds small and large. In the past few years, I have formed funds of between $500K and $450M and, in the aggregate, billions of dollars. I regularly represent companies and investors in seed, debt and venture capital financings of all types, mergers and acquisitions, general corporate, and related matters.
I am also editor of TheVentureAlley.com.
I was born and raised on the eastside of Seattle and currently live just south of the city with my wife and our two Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs. I attended the University of Washington for both undergraduate and law school and have been a huge Husky fan since I was a little kid.
