Case History

Start-Up Telecommunications Company — Jeffrey represented a start-up telecommunications company from its inception and served as its general counsel through its sale to a publicly-traded company for more than $500 million. As general counsel, he was instrumental in drafting contracts which were at the cutting edge of the telecommunications boom. Jeffrey's input on all legal matters was instrumental in strategic planning and decision-making throughout his term of service. When the company was sold, the transaction was structured so that the original owners were able to retain assets of great value. These assets were then used to form another company, providing the owners with greatly enhanced returns on their initial investment.
