Chris Carlisle is instrumental in mergers and acquisitions, emerging company, and venture capital finance legal efforts. He provides a broad range of services to both established and emerging companies in a variety of industries, with significant client concentrations in technology, life science, agribusiness, franchise, and manufacturing.

-Has developed a deep understanding of how companies are organized, financed, built, and brought to market (sold or brought public);
-Guides his clients in each stage of their financing development, from initial founder capitalization, friends, family, and “angel” investors, venture capital, strategic partnerships, and senior and mezzanine lending;
-Provides practical legal and business counsel, delivered with sound business judgment;
-Invests off-the-clock time in getting to know his clients and their needs; and
-Works hard to earn the role of trusted advisor on both legal and business matters.
