Anthony Millin is a trusted legal and business advisor to startup, early-stage and emerging growth companies. As a corporate and securities attorney, a successful serial entrepreneur and a venture capitalist, he brings a unique legal and business perspective to advising his clients.
“Anthony has had a tremendous impact on the success of my company since we were in the startup phase,” says Dale Nirvani Pfeifer, Founder and CEO of GoodWorld. “He has not only provided sound and creative legal support but has also served as a key business advisor throughout the growth of my company.”
Anthony understands firsthand what it takes to start, scale and manage a company, to successfully prepare for and run a fund raising process, and to address the legal issues faced by a startup. This background provides him with valuable insights into the legal and business needs of his clients. Within Shulman Rogers, his unique skill set has earned him an appointment to the firm’s 6-person Strategic Planning Committee.
Patrick Rathje, President of Ener.co, describes his experience working with Anthony, “Whether we are embarking on a capital raise, negotiating contracts and agreements or developing strategic plans for national and international transactions, Anthony is an integral part of the process. His own experience in launching and building businesses enables him to contribute proven legal and strategic advice to support my company’s success.”
A creative problem solver and strong advocate dedicated to the success of his clients, Anthony frequently serves as his clients’ “outside general counsel”, taking a leadership role in managing the full range of their legal needs.
His legal practice includes general corporate counseling, formations, preparation of investor packages, angel and institutional equity and debt financings, joint ventures/strategic partnerships, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, and advice on token sales and initial coin offerings. Anthony also has worked closely with a range of angel and institutional investors and assists his clients to identify potential investors. He serves businesses across multiple industries, including internet/SaaS, technology, biotech, clean energy, education, finance, manufacturing and health care.
Another specialized skill set Anthony brings to the table is his China-based experience, with which he assists early-stage and middle-market companies interested in conducting business in China, or seeking direct foreign investment from China.
