The Team

Jeremy Raphael

I’m an Emerging Companies partner at Egan Nelson representing technology companies and entrepreneurs.  

I lead the firm’s New York office and focus on working closely with startups at all stages of a company’s lifecycle, from formation and early growth advising to angel and venture capital financings to mergers and acquisitions.  I have helped clients close hundreds of millions of dollars in venture financings and M&A deals.  While many of our companies are in the New York area, we have clients nationwide.

Egan Nelson is a top-tier corporate & commercial boutique law firm focused on providing emerging companies access to world class counsel, without the inefficiencies and inertia of large, traditional law firms.  I’ve worked at those firms, too.  At Egan Nelson, we don’t represent tech VCs funds or angels.  We are company counsel: clients don’t have to worry about conflicts of interest that come with also representing tech VCs.  But I draw on years of experience in more traditional global law firms representing leading venture funds and private equity firms in connection with investments.

I am a native New Yorker and I’ve been named a Super Lawyers New York Metro Rising Star each of the last four years.  I have guest lectured at the University of Michigan Law School’s Entrepreneurship Clinic, and I’m a member of the Brooklyn Law School GOLD Director’s Council.

We write about legal issues.  This isn’t legal advice and doesn’t establish an attorney-client relationship.
