Key Accomplishments

Unique advice on protecting founders of start-ups and early stage businesses, and their advisers/counsel, from the tiny personal and business landmines initially imperceptible to us that decide everything; as well as holistic stressors that destroy the personal performance of founders (80 to 90 percent of whom fail). Experience and wisdom derived from founding, raising $250 million and building a new business valued in six years by Merrill in the range of $419 to $651 million then spending over a decade in federal and state courts and agencies trying to be paid for founder’s shares.

Founded, raised $250 million of start-up capital and built $197 million business with 2,900 employees in over 30 sites in five years from launch, which was independently valued by Merrill in the range of $419 to $651 million.Largest independent bill presentment, content management, remittance business in U.S. with equity partnerships with Wells Fargo, Bank of America and Chase

Decade of plaintiff litigation (pro se and counsel-represented) in federal and state courts on private company minority management ownership legal issues. Highly specialized.

Underwrote and/or agented over $3 billion in corporate financings.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

As management executive owner or adviser to plan, document, launch and provide governance to start-up based on (co)founder's subject-matter specialist's vision.

Work in conjunction with founder and founder's counsel and/or investment banker to best protect founder's contribution to start-up from dilution and 'taking' by investors for a price less than "fair value - not "fair market value".....decades of unique experience and knowledge that can also benefit counsel and investment bankers.

As an Advisor

Initial issue identification followed by clear articulation of where I bring value in an engagement.
