Ted is a sought-after attorney, entrepreneur with an MBA in finance, and a published novelist who relishes his role as counselor to fellow entrepreneurs, established companies and the investors who support them.

Ted’s driving belief is that entrepreneurs often need more than accomplished attorneys – the excitement and stress of conceiving a new venture demands sound business advice, shared passion, experienced leadership, and the empathy that only a fellow entrepreneur can provide. Ted listens to his clients, partners with them, understanding their business and their goals. Even after the legal work is done, he often stays involved with his clients, continually counseling the growing ventures from launch to liquidity.

After graduating from Vanderbilt University, Ted began his career as an entrepreneur, starting a political consulting firm that offered such services as campaign management, media creation & purchasing, and general strategy. After three years of advising challengers, incumbents and organizations, he realized how much he wanted to learn about the law and finance, so Ted sold his firm’s assets and entered Vanderbilt’s JD/MBA program.

Four years later, Ted began his legal career in New York with Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, a prominent firm founded in 1863 with sixteen offices in seven countries on three continents. While working in Orrick’s federal securities group, he advised companies and underwriters on the private and public offering of both equity and debt.

Ted serves as General Counsel for Icebreaker Entertainment, LLC, a multi-brand consumer products company with products for sale at Target, Walmart, Kohl’s, Barnes & Noble, and many other major retailers.  St. Martin’s Press published Ted’s first novel, EAT WHAT YOU KILL, in March 2014 and the movie rights have been optioned by the producer of Wall Street, American Psycho and many other major feature films.

Ted has been a guest speaker on venture capital and e-commerce at Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management and was a featured panelist at a New Venture Conference.  He appeared in BusinessWeek, has been interviewed on Radio Wall Street and has been quoted in many articles on both business and legal topics.
