Jeffrey M. Pomerance, Of Counsel
Jeff Pomerance has represented individual investors, private equity funds, and businesses on a broad variety of acquisitions, joint ventures, dispositions, turnarounds, restructurings, general corporate representation and financings, and has worked with companies in a wide array of industries, including healthcare, technology, manufacturing and retail. Although he has focused primarily on early-stage and middle market privately held businesses, Mr. Pomerance has participated on deals in excess of $100 million, including representing the management of Montgomery Ward in a multi-billion management buyout from Mobil.
Most recently, prior to joining the firm, Mr. Pomerance served as the Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel of Digital Media Campus, a venture-backed “incubator” focused on early- and middle-stage investment opportunities, primarily in the sports/entertainment and technology-related fields. In this capacity, he was responsible for managing all corporate, legal, operational and financial functions for the parent and portfolio companies.

Jeff is constantly amazed at how things change, and yet remain the same. For example, he vividly remembers as a first-year associate having to "redline" a document, using a red marker and a ruler. Now, with a few quick "clicks," he is treated to a perfect electronic redline. Yet, despite the improved technologies, there remains a constant as a transactional attorney: solve problems by developing solutions that make clients happy (and hopefully successful). Fortunately, Jeff loves problem-solving, whether it involves assisting clients in resolving complicated business/financing/acquisition issues, figuring out how his new electronic "toys" work or understanding how to work with his children with their "new math" assignments. He does sense that he should keep his day job, as he tends to have limited success with electronics. His wife and five precocious children would probably eagerly concur.
