Tom practices in the areas of corporate and securities transactions, corporate governance, and general corporate matters. His transactional practice focuses on domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, emerging company/venture capital transactions, private equity transactions, and financing transactions. He also regularly advises companies on executive compensation, employment, licensing, corporate governance, corporate finance and commercial contract matters.
Tom regularly represents founders and investors (strategic and financial) in a variety of emerging company transactions, including angel and venture capital investments—across various industries, such as technology, life sciences, health care, manufacturing, energy, and financial services, among others. As a start-up practitioner who has nurtured companies through their early stages, Tom sees his job as a legal advisor and a team member. Many of his clients are entrepreneurs dealing with new and often unfamiliar challenges. He understands the pressures they face and the risks they take, and puts himself in their shoes to advise on the myriad complexities of starting a new company, growing it, and working toward an eventual exit.
When not hard at work, Tom can be found playing golf, skiing and playing soccer with his three daughters.
