Marcus Wilkinson is a Partner with more than 30 years of experience who handles mergers and acquisitions, venture capital transactions, angel investments, joint ventures and general corporate matters.
His practice involves structuring, documenting and negotiating seed through later stage equity financings, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, intellectual property licenses, and general corporate matters. His clients span a broad range of industries, including e-commerce, Internet-based businesses, data collection and analysis, and software. He also represents several privately-held companies in an “outside general counsel” capacity, starting with pre-formation issues, progressing through several rounds of financing, and culminating in an “exit” transaction. In that capacity, he counsels entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders on the full range of legal issues that arise over the course of a company’s lifetime, including general corporate matters (such as employment agreements, equity incentive plans, and intellectual property protection measures), and commercial contracts (such as manufacturing, development, distribution, supply and license agreements).
