Welcome to my site.  Here you will find my thoughts on legal and financing issues for early stage technology and healthcare companies.  My career has encompassed all aspects of company formation, financing, development and maturation:  from electrical engineer to corporate attorney to General Counsel to venture investor; from venture-backed to Fortune 100; from investment partnerships to service businesses to product businesses; and from technology to healthcare.

Currently, I provide legal services exclusively to investors, focused on the venture capital and private equity markets, through my boutique law firm Investor Counsel.  I work on a variety of transactions on behalf of investors and security holders, including fund formation, financing and operations, structuring and negotiating investments, mergers and acquisitions, dispute resolution, distribution of escrows, earn-outs and milestones, and purchaser representation.  In addition, I am a Managing Director for the legacy (fully invested) Miramar Venture Partners venture funds, provide financial and legal consulting for the Miramar Digital Ventures family of funds, teach venture capital in the MBA program at USC’s Marshall School of Business, and have provided General Counsel and financial strategy consulting to early stage technology companies.  If you are interested in learning more, please contact me by email Bob Holmen.
