My name is Justin Escher Alpert. I counsel venture capital investors and corporate clients ranging in size from individual owners to publicly traded entities. My experience encompasses a broad range of transactions, advising companies and investors with regard to capital raising, restructuring of capitalization, mergers and acquisitions, general corporate governance, and compliance with or exemption from securities laws and regulations in public and private financings and investments, as well as day-to-day commercial and operating issues facing small and mid-size companies.
I represent companies throughout the course of their business with respect to corporate formation, business strategy, employment contracts and compensation plans, complex contract negotiation and drafting, and licensing of intellectual property. I also advise companies in drafting business plan memoranda, taking great care to unravel complicated businesses to a vernacular for presentation to angel and venture capital investors at all stages of financing.
I was previously associated with Lowenstein Sandler as counsel to its Tech Group and with the Wall Street firm of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft in its Corporate/M&A Department.
Prior to practicing law, I spent years working on production of major motion pictures, including The Devil’s Own, Striptease, Fair Game, Independence Day; The Indian in the Cupboard, and The Perez Family, in Miami, Los Angeles, and New York. I currently play guitar and harmonica with Essex County's premier rock n' roll band, The Stiff Joints.
I graduated with a B.A. from Florida State University and earned my J.D. from New York Law School, magna cum laude. I am admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey.
Whether you are an investor, entrepreneur, software programmer, or intellectual property licensor or licensee, I welcome the opportunity to be of service to you and be a partner in managing the growth of your business.
Please feel free to contact me at any time.
