About Adrian M. Rich 

Adrian M. Rich has more than 15 years of experience counseling high-growth, emerging companies and their investors. With an education in biomedical engineering and economics and a lifelong passion for computers and programming, Adrian brings a deep technological understanding and a unique approach to counseling clients from inception to exit, as they undertake financial and strategic investments, licensing, strategic partnerships, acquisitions and public offerings, as well as routine corporate matters. He tackles complex negotiations and issues, including deal structuring, reorganizations and down-rounds, using strong quantitative skills, coupled with creative problem solving.

The first decade of Adrian’s practice was almost exclusively focused on the medical device and biotech industry across a number of organs and disease states. Reflecting the rise in HealthTec as a separate industry, the underlying trends of convergence of technology in life science and his own background, Adrian’s practice focus has broadened to include big data, artificial intelligence/machine learning, AR/VR and blockchain, both as applied to life sciences and as applied to business processes, data science and education.

In addition, Adrian represents several impact companies and investors supporting clean water and gender and racial equality in the venture environment. His clients also include venture funds, first-time funds and accelerators/incubators. Outside of the office, Adrian is a self-appointed, weekend only, full stack developer trying to make the perfect dashboard and toolset for his practice.
