We live under a system of regulated capitalism. This means that, whether for good or ill, private businesses are impacted by laws, regulations, and judicial decisions. While one tends to think of the law as something imposed by government, businesses frequently engage in private law making in the form of contracts, which arguably have a greater impact since contracts permeate almost every facet of modern business relationships. Successful entrepreneurs know how to navigate the law to maximize profits, minimize risks, and to seize new business opportunities presented by regulatory changes.
This blog is geared towards entrepreneurs seeking knowledge about how to raising capital, how to conduct business internationally (often as a small fish swimming among giants), and how to navigate a changing regulatory landscape. Each of these topics deserves a tome and can be approached from multiple perspectives. As a lawyer, I offer insight on how the law may impact the ability of entrepreneurs, and by extension their businesses, to manage these challenges. I write from knowledge gained through research and from experience accrued from advising on multi-million dollar capital raises and negotiating complex international business transactions on behalf of clients.
The tagline of this blog is “Knowledge, Strategy, Execution”. Speaking from experience, success in any venture requires gathering the requisite knowledge, devising a strategy using that knowledge, and executing that strategy. Failure often ensues when this process is not followed. I hope that this blog will present some kernels of useful knowledge. I also invite readers to connect with me on social media and share with me their knowledge, expertise, and opinion.
