Mr. Venture Lawyer
I work for the law firm that does more company-side venture capital financing deals than any other and that is where I spend the majority of my practice. We do have large corporate clients (Fortune 20) and I have worked on M&A deals, IPOs, and other corporate governance work, as well. I love corporate law but business is where my passion lies.
