Greg has nearly 20 years of experience representing public and private companies in complex transactional and general corporate matters. He focuses his practice on emerging growth industries — most notably cleantech, life sciences, and digital health — and regularly represents venture capital firms and investment banks that support emerging growth companies.

Greg has closed hundreds of deals for cleantech, life sciences, and technology clients. He has represented public and private targets and acquirers in mergers and acquisitions valued from under $1 million to over $1 billion, represented both issuers and investors in hundreds of venture capital financings valued from under $1 million to several hundred million dollars, and represented both issuers and underwriters in public and private offerings.

He regularly serves as outside general counsel, advising start-ups and emerging growth companies on their business plans as well as company formation issues, and counseling public companies with regard to disclosure obligations and SEC compliance issues.

Prior to joining Mintz Levin, Greg was a partner in the Silicon Valley offices of two global law firms. He was co-founder of one prominent firm’s cleantech practice and served as global co-chair of its cleantech industry group. Before he launched his legal career, Greg worked in business development and marketing for an emerging growth company in Japan, and wrote a column in Japanese about Silicon Valley news.
