Von Bryant

I am passionate about delivering world-class service, practical solutions, and customized advice to my clients in the innovative technology and life sciences sectors.

My core focus is helping high-growth companies with their fundraising efforts and acting as their outside general counsel. I provide strategic recommendations with an eye for driving continued success and potential exits – from investment and governance to commercial considerations.

Additional thought and work on the front end often lead to efficiencies and advantages over the long term. I work hard to instill those principles in the work I do for clients.

I take pride in working with start-ups pre-launch and then eventually seeing their products or services offered to the public at-large. Clients are able to leverage the deep experience of my Foley colleagues for anything an emerging company may need – whether that be specialization in intellectual property, technology transfer, securities, tax, or other regulatory matters. Being able to make introductions to potential investors or partners to benefit the company and making a difference in important decisions that help emerging companies and startups achieve their goals is one of the most fulfilling aspects of my career.

When not in the office, I am frequently with my kids at the playground, enjoying nature, or rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles.
