David L. Renauld


I help my clients get business done.

Dave Renauld focuses on helping clients achieve their business objectives in the real world. His many years in the dual roles of general counsel and head of investor relations of a publicly traded technology company enable him to bring a deep understanding of business realities to assisting his clients. One of the things he enjoys most is brainstorming with clients about innovative business ideas and then using his experience to craft a practical agreement to achieve that client’s vision.

Through experiences as the general counsel of a publicly traded technology company and as an attorney at large law firms in Massachusetts and Delaware, Dave has developed expertise in quite a number of substantive legal areas and assists clients with a wide array of legal matters.  

Dave particularly enjoys using that range of experience when he regularly advises boards of directors and senior management on how best to achieve their business objectives. He excels at working with clients to creatively structure business relationships to achieve the desired business objectives while mitigating associated risks.
