Background & Experience

Experience

Tom primarily serves as outside general counsel to emerging and middle-market companies, providing guidance and assistance in all aspects of their organization, operation and financing. He has helped many technology companies with their product development, licensing and distribution arrangements. Through his extensive work with emerging, fast growth companies, Tom has considerable experience with early stage and venture financings, joint ventures, strategic partnerships and M&A transactions.
