Venture Capital & Emerging Growth Companies February Activities


McCarter’s Venture Capital & Emerging Growth Companies Practice empowers clients throughout the development cycle—from ideation to creation, capitalization, implementation, commercialization and monetization.

Our practice continues to expand. New partner Ron Leibman has joined the Corporate practice group and will help provide solutions to clients’ business- and law-related transportation, logistics, and supply chain management issues. He will be actively involved in the firm’s venture capital and emerging growth companies representations and will work closely with its blockchain, smart contracts and digital currencies group. The group has also welcomed new associates Morgan Jones, Christopher Dickson, and Elliott Schreffler, who will be focused on representing emerging tech, tech-enabled and life sciences companies and the investors who support them.

Our attorneys are on the cutting edge of legal and technological developments. We recognize that PropTech is positioned to disrupt the way we buy, sell, finance, and manage property—creating a more streamlined experience for businesses, investors, landlords, tenants, and consumers. To help innovators in this area exploit new opportunities and create cutting-edge solutions, we have assembled a PropTech industry group drawing on the strengths of attorneys across our various practices.

We are proud to share current media coverage and other good news highlighting the accomplishments of our clients. This includes Yumble, a meal delivery service providing parents with healthy, kid-friendly options, which was recently featured on ABC’s “Shark Tank.” Yumble was also the subject of the ROI-NJ article “Special Delivery: Parker Aims to Be Savior of Working Moms with Healthy Meal Service for Kids.” And TigerTrade, an international B2B marketplace for trading excess retail inventory, was selected by IBM to be one of 10 companies to participate in its blockchain accelerator.

Our attorneys are frequent speakers and authors, and appear regularly in the press in connection with trending topics and developing news in the tech and entrepreneurial ecosystem. For example, McCarter will participate in NJ Tech Council’s 2019 Venture Conference in April 11 at NJIT in Newark. Companies interested in participating in taking the stage to pitch should visit the event’s site and complete the pitch application by March 1.
