Portrait of Danielle Naftulin

What I do:
I work with entrepreneurs and venture capital investors in forming and financing emerging technology and life sciences companies. I handle everything from formations, venture capital financings, recapitalizations, mergers and acquisitions, spin-outs and general corporate matters to initial public offerings and other strategic transactions.

What my clients value:
I give clients practical solutions that cut to the chase. I work collaboratively with clients and the other parties to transactions to resolve issues in ways that work for all.

Why Cooley?
It’s the coming together of best-in-class skills and get-it-done attitude that really sets us apart. We know what’s worth fighting for and what you should let go. We really operate as a team, across practice areas and offices, so you’re always getting the right people at the right time, not just the person who happened to meet you first.

Some of my clients:
Norwest Venture Partners, Atreca, Grove Collaborative, Peerspace, Lyncean Technologies, GSV Acceleration, Okera, Certain Lending, Quizizz, Core Wellness

I root for:
Michigan (Go Blue!), Sharks
