Doug is a lawyer with Fourscore Business Law and primarily practices in the areas of corporate and business law. Prior to joining in 2018, Doug worked for several years in the financial services industry, focusing primarily in the derivatives and brokerage space before leaving to join Fourscore. Prior to his legal career, Doug worked at a venture backed startup, in investment banking, and was an educational consultant.
Doug advises and assists enterprises ranging from start-ups, middle-market companies, and multi-national corporations across a broad range of industries including finance, technology, health care, manufacturing, advertising, and software to name a few. Doug also regularly assists closely-held businesses in a wide variety of contexts including business formation and organization.
Though a great deal of Doug’s energy is devoted to his law practice, Doug enjoys spending time with his wife, Lauren, and two dogs (a lab rescue and a golden retriever), as well as spending time outside running, playing tennis, golfing, skiing, and traveling. Their favorite vacation destination is Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Doug and his wife are also becoming DIY house project experts (although he's best suited sticking to legal advice).
