Partner / Leader, West Coast Emerging Companies and Venture Capital
Lior Zorea represents emerging growth companies and venture capital funds with respect to their financing and general corporate needs. He is also a seasoned M&A practitioner and has worked with clients in virtually every information technology industry, including internet, consumer-interfacing and enterprise software, digital media, semiconductor, mobile technologies, health tech, fin-tech, VR/AR and cryptocurrency.
I help companies advance their business to the next level. I work with emerging technology clients through their entire life cycle—from business formation to funding (from angel to seed to venture financing to late-stage expansion capital) and finally to orchestrating their exits.
I also have extensive experience working with clients on mergers and acquisitions. I have worked on hundreds of transactions with values upwards of $2.5 billion. In addition to working with my private technology companies on sell-side transactions, I have deep experience with a variety of acquisition transaction structures including public/public and public/private transactions.
Many of the entrepreneurs I work with go on to form funds, and I work with them to help launch those funds and to manage their portfolio investments. I also work with established venture funds on their portfolio investments.
Utilizing my background in finance, economics and math, I bring a unique, quantitative approach to my practice.
Technology is a ubiquitous agent for change and integral to companies well beyond cutting edge Silicon Valley start-ups. Brick-and-mortar businesses are increasingly relying on technology, whether to enhance their operations, customer experience and profitability, or as a catalyst for business transformation. Our team at Nixon Peabody has worked with a wide range of technology companies of all stages. We understand the fast pace and pressures in the ever-evolving business landscape and stay on top of trends to deliver value to our traditional and technology clients across the globe.
