Evan Sheets
Winthrop & Weinstine, Attorney/Shareholder

I represent clients in securities and general corporate matters, including debt and equity financing, securities law compliance and corporate governance. I also represent clients in a wide range of corporate transactions, with an emphasis on venture capital and growth equity financings, mergers and acquisitions, and the general representation of both established and emerging growth companies. I routinely advise on the formation, structuring and operation of investment funds, including private equity funds, venture capital funds and hedge funds. My experience also includes corporate, limited partnership and limited liability company formation and structuring.

Christopher Hussey
Winthrop & Weinstine, Attorney/Shareholder

I advise private companies and private equity funds with middle-market merger and acquisition transactions. In addition, I consistently lead the drafting and negotiation of a wide range of commercial contracts for a number of privately held businesses, assist companies with raising capital and advise clients regarding general business matters.


We will provide Startup Week participants with an opportunity to meet with attorneys from the firm’s “Winthrop Accelerate” program, which is specifically designed to counsel Founders on issues commonly encountered by growth-stage companies.  Each meeting will be 30 minutes and will take the format best suited to the needs of the particular participant (e.g., discussion of questions or issues facing a particular company, initial review company organizational documents, address options for capital and governance structures and/or other topics necessary to provide a solid foundation to successfully operate and raise capital). After the meeting, Founders will also have access to our suite of complimentary agreements specifically tailored for Founders and their growth-stage ventures, including non-disclosure agreements; sample employment, independent contractor and advisor agreements; and/or confidential information and inventions assignment agreements.
