Todd Tidgewell

Todd Tidgewell is a partner in the firm’s Private Equity practice. He represents private equity funds, their limited partners and their portfolio companies.

What do you focus on?

I focus on private equity transactions, including the formation and financing of business enterprises, mergers and acquisitions, capital financing and private equity fund formation.

I am corporate counsel to a number of emerging technology companies and privately held businesses and advise private equity, venture capital and angel investors in connection with their portfolio investments.

I am a regular panelist and frequent speaker at events focused on M&A, venture capital and emerging technology and have written on the subject of deal structuring and private finance for several publications. I served as a member of the drafting committee of the National Venture Capital Association’s Standard Forms Project, which released its first set of industry-standard venture capital deal documents in 2004.

I am a member of the Board of Directors of Albany Medical Center and an active member of the Upstate Venture Association of New York.

What do you see on the horizon?

I’m thinking about how lower startup costs reduce barriers to entry and how investors may evolve by deploying smaller amounts of capital with milestones focused on rapid innovation.
