Forrest Firm’s Goldblatt, Bradley Host Lunch and Learn on Startup Equity at Asheville’s Collider

On August 21, the Forrest Firm will present a lunch and learn event, A Smaller Piece of the Pie Is Better Than No Pie at All, at the Collider, a hub for climate entrepreneurs in Asheville.

Martha Bradley, who leads the Forrest Firm’s Asheville office based at the Collider, will host and moderate the event, while attorney Adam Goldblatt of the firm’s Durham office will share his thoughts and experiences on the subject of sharing equity. The lunch and learn event will take place on Tuesday, August 21 at 12pm.

The Collider is a nonprofit innovation center and coworking space that brings government, business, and nonprofits together to create climate change solutions. Since opening its doors in 2016, this space has fostered the growth of an impressive roster of climate startups and entrepreneurs.

Event attendees should develop a better understanding of equity from Mr. Goldblatt’s presentation, which will primarily focus on a couple of key aspects of corporate ownership, including equity- opportunities to co-founders, employees, consultants, directors, and advisors. In addition, if time permits, Mr. Goldblatt will share his thoughts on maximum use and benefits of a board of directors and board of advisors.

Adam Goldblatt joined the Forrest Firm’s Raleigh office in April. He recently moved his practice to North Carolina after spending more than 20 years working from Seattle. Mr. Goldblatt has provided in-house, general counsel services to companies across the United States and internationally, with matters spanning a wide range of areas within business and corporate law. He currently focuses his practice on the needs of early and mid-stage companies across the US, working from Raleigh, Seattle, and New York City.

Mr. Goldblatt’s work includes particular emphasis on business formation, financing transactions (including debt, equity, angel, and venture), mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property protection and licensing, privacy (including GDPR), and executive compensation.

Martha Bradley, moderator for the lunch and learn event, focuses her Asheville-based practice on all aspects of civil litigation, as well as business and real estate litigation, at trial and appellate court levels.
