Startups & Venture Capital

Alex is active in Nashville’s startup community as a member of the board of directors of the Nashville Business Incubation Center and as a mentor at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, and he participates in numerous other events geared towards making Nashville a nationally ranked location for starting a business.
Professionals within the private investment fund industry benefit from the expertise Alex gained when he served as general counsel to a fund manager. He drafts the formation documents for private funds, including hedge funds, private equity funds, and real estate investment partnerships. He also counsels investment advisers on their regulatory obligations, such as initial state or SEC registration and ongoing compliance.
Mergers & Acquisitions; Outside General Counsel
Many businesses look to Alex as their outside “general counsel” for day-to-day legal needs as well as their trusted adviser on high-stakes transactions, such as partnership buyouts and disputes, technology transactions, and mergers and acquisitions. His first goal is to provide clients with responsive service and candid and decisive legal advice for the difficult choices they frequently face.
