Eckerle Law

Practice/Organization Description

Eckerle Law is a corporate law firm. I started it to help companies in every stage of their life cycle, from formation to first round of financing to sale and IPO, and everything in-between. With two decades of experience as the General Counsel for two market leaders in heavily regulated industries, and as a lawyer at two of the top law firms in the country, I know both sides and can deal with the ins and outs of businesses with complex legal and business issues. My mission is to give companies a solid legal foundation, so they can focus on what matters most to their success and to legal advice accessible and practical.

More specifically:

-I assist with financings from crowd funding to seed money to venture capital, private equity and regular debt financing, as well as IPO prep.

-I help with mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, and joint ventures and other collaborations.

-I take care of corporate housekeeping and a company’s day-to-day legal needs as de facto general counsel.

-I help investment advisers, hedge funds and private equity funds comply with regulations, including the Investment Advisers' Act of 1940.

Mostly to help clients with their day-to-day compliance work, I recently authored "The Ultimate Guide to the Advisers Act, A Practitioner's Guide", finally a reference book for anyone involved in compliance at investment advisory firms.

I am also a speaker on corporate law and compliance topics.
