Bio

Ben Sandler’s wide-ranging practice is focused on representing emerging and established technology companies. His expertise ranges from mergers and acquisitions (including complex employment and integration issues) and equity investments (from both the company and investor sides) to ongoing internal corporate matters and commercial transactions.
