What did LL Cool J say? “Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years . . . .” Well, something like that. It’s been over two years since I’ve blogged. I really can’t believe it’s been that long. It honestly feels like yesterday.
What’s happened since then? First, I updated the VCDL site. It was time to get away from the tired looking late 90’s design.
Second, I merged my practice with some old friends at Baer Crossey LLC sometime around the beginning of May, 2012, and, honestly, it’s the main driver for why I haven’t posted in the past two years. Growing the practice, scaling our operations and hiring and retaining really great (highly experienced) startup, venture and tech lawyers is a time-consuming endeavor.
Third, I’ve continued working with my partner Jon Axelrod on our fund called Cairn Venture Partners, LLC. Sourcing and evaluating opportunities takes time outside of my practice at Baer Crossey LLC.
Lastly, I’ve been doing some teaching on the side in the entrepreneurship and venture law areas. In the Fall of ’13 I was honored to help Chuck Sacco with his LaunchIt class in Drexel’s Close School of Entrepreneurship. This Fall of ’14 I’ll be teaching the Venture Capital and Private Equity class at Drexel University School of Law.
Despite all of these wonderful things that are progressing and moving along, it’s time for me to get back to blogging. So much to say.
