It takes one to know one. Drew is particularly skilled in helping entrepreneurs and their investors navigate corporate and transactional legal matters because he has been in their shoes. After earning his law degree, Drew founded his own firm, and later became a member of several venture capital syndicates. As an attorney, Drew provides well-honed advice to entrepreneurs, early and growth-stage companies, venture capital investors, closely-held family businesses, investment banks, and private equity firms. Drew has a passion for helping his clients achieve their growth and exit goals, and has counseled dozens of emerging companies throughout their lifecycles – from formation and funding to growth and maturation. He also represents angel investors, investment syndicates, and venture capital firms, guiding them through the formation of SPVs, investment clubs, and venture capital funds. In each matter he handles, Drew’s thoughtful approach is backed by his real-world knowledge of the issues affecting his clients.
