Jeffrey Pomerance

Senior Counsel

Jeff Pomerance represents individuals and businesses seeking assistance in creating, maximizing, protecting and retaining their value proposition throughout the business “life cycle.”  Jeff has demonstrated success in answering the “how” question when facing business challenges by listening, developing, advising and implementing effective multi-disciplinary strategies that combine legal, financial, operational and business knowledge with years of practical “hands-on” experience.  Jeff’s clients include individual investors, entrepreneurs, businesses and financing sources in a wide array of industries, including healthcare, technology, service, manufacturing and retail. Although Jeff has participated on deals in excess of $100 million, including the multi-billion Montgomery Ward management buyout from Mobile Corp., he has primarily focused on start-ups, early stage and middle market privately held businesses and turnaround/restructuring opportunities.  Jeff’s varied experiences mirror his diverse background and skills, as both an entrepreneur, business advisor, officer, attorney and accountant.  Prior to joining the Firm, Jeff served as:

  • Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel of Digital Media Campus, a venture-backed “incubator” focused on early-stage and middle-stage investment opportunities, primarily in the sports/entertainment and technology-related fields. In this capacity, he was primarily responsible for managing all corporate, legal, operational and financial functions for the parent and portfolio companies;

  • Vice President of Corporate Strategy and General counsel of a venture-backed start-up information sharing technology company;

  • Founder and Principal of a business advisory services firm focused on early stage/middle market opportunities;

  • Corporate/Mergers & Acquisition Attorney for a Chicago-based full service law firm; and

  • Accountant with Arthur Andersen & Co. in the Tax Department providing tax advisory services.

As part of his services, Jeff has drafted and negotiated a wide array of documents covering every phase of the formation, growth, development and evolution of a business, including, just to name a few,  letters of intent and term sheets, asset purchase agreements, stock purchase agreements, merger documents, licenses, restructuring agreements, financing/loan documents, guaranties and pledges, secured transaction documentation, employment and independent contractor agreements, forbearance agreements, redemption and termination agreements, bankruptcy plans and disclosure statements, incorporation and formation documentation and equity offering/issuance documentation, and business plans and term sheets.
