Ellen C. Kim
Ellen Kim has extensive knowledge and experience in all matters of business law, entity formation and a variety of commercial transactions.
Her experience in corporate matters includes business formation, entrepreneurships, partnerships, employment and executive compensation, expansion and dissolution and financing, with specialization in private equity financing.
Ellen has worked closely with boards of directors of both public and privately held corporations spanning several industries, including fashion, hospitality, renewable energy, private equity funds, fund administrators and investment advisors.
She has also had the unique opportunity of becoming fluent in working with all sides of the start-up universe. Ellen began her career representing start-up companies seeking venture capital funding or incubation services and began to introduce venture capital and business incubator contacts to the companies she was representing. That early relationship-building process eventually developed into a comprehensive effort to help both start-up companies seeking funding and venture capital funds and business incubators seeking profitable new investments.
Ellen has experience nurturing start-ups through the business life cycle, serving them from their formative stages, during periods of growth, and through their exits. Depending on the needs of the company, she has served in the capacity of general counsel, playing an active role in day-to-day operations and functioning as an integral part of company management, providing legal advice and business counsel and, alternatively, participating as a situational advisor who consults with in-house legal counsel and executive teams regarding strategic corporate decisions.
