Startups

Since 2007, Al has provided strategic planning and problem solving support to new and established business owners. Over his career, his clients have expanded into new ventures in a variety of industries and locations, and he has continued to be an active member of St. Louis's blossoming startup community. The fast-moving nature of technology startups makes responsiveness and efficiency essential elements of any startup representation, so Al's wide range of transactional experience allows him to add value to startup owners at all levels of development. The insights he brings to other companies doing business with startups provide novel and effective solutions to the problems commonly encountered in the startup world.

As a Champion Sponsor of StartLouis, Lewis Rice provides a legal perspective to individuals interested in beginning new businesses or growing their young companies, and Al has been honored with several invitations to present to the group on his areas of experience.
