René Varrin brings broad knowledge and experience in corporate and business law to the increasingly complex needs of Massachusetts small to mid-size companies. Throughout the stages of the business lifecycle, from startup to financing to sale, Mr. Varrin strives to provide practical and timely advice in an efficient and cost-effective manner. With a natural curiosity and genuine interest in understanding each client’s business and goals, Mr. Varrin enjoys the two –way communications and client “partnership’ essential to effective representation. His expectation is to provide each client with the on-going specific business knowledge and attention of in-house counsel, which is not normally available to small to mid-size companies, in co-ordination with the resources that an outside firm can provide.
Mr. Varrin actively practices in the areas of entity creation and related issues of founders’ relations, initial staffing and finance; commercial and vendor relationships including manufacturing, distribution and licensing; private equity, venture capital and angel investments; contract preparation, negotiation and administration; ownership conflict and succession; employment contracts, including noncompetition, non-disclosure and intellectual property agreements; executive compensation including the structuring and negotiation of equity and performance-based incentives and plans, and the merger and acquisition of businesses and business lines on either the buyer and seller side.
Mr. Varrin actively supports and collaborates with the firm’s other practice areas, including Intellectual Property, Employment, Commercial Real Estate, Taxation and Litigation.
