The most rewarding part of what I do is building long-term relationships with entrepreneurs and investors as an outside legal and strategic advisor.

He provides proactive and thoughtful guidance on venture capital and private equity matters, mergers and acquisitions transactions, and general corporate matters.

Chip has considerable experience representing emerging technology companies across a range of sectors relating to securities transactions, joint ventures and strategic alliances. He regularly advises venture capital funds on their organizational structure, the issuance of their securities and investments in their portfolio companies. Chip also works actively with emerging growth and other technology companies, as well as with entrepreneurs behind them, at all stages of a company's growth process, from incorporation through exit strategies.
