Peter L. Edwards

Peter L. Edwards serves on the firm's Executive Committee and has been advising growth-stage technology businesses as a lawyer and venture capital investor for more than 30 years. He counsels privately held technology companies through the entire financial and legal life cycle, from founding through multiple financing rounds and ultimately through a sale or public offering. His background as a principal investor, venture capitalist and corporate lawyer enables him to offer growth-stage companies a rare combination of hands-on, practical advice, as well as technical legal guidance and execution.

Peter played an instrumental role in launching the globally-recognized venture capital firm Altira Group, initially as its outside general counsel and later as a partner and principal investor. In that capacity, Peter developed a widespread network of contacts and appeared frequently as a speaker at seminars and conferences. He is known nationally as an adviser, lawyer, and strategist for growth-stage, venture-funded technology businesses, particularly those in software, alternative energy, and electric power.

Peter has spent many years in private and corporate legal practice representing a broad array of technology clients in business transactions, litigation, and intellectual property matters in the fields of implantable medical devices, pharmaceuticals, energy, software, the Internet, and telecommunications.
