Meet Jeremy Glaser
I love to represent growing ventures, particularly technology-based companies in software, mobile applications, biotechnology, medical devices, and clean energy. For more than 30 years I’ve helped companies raise angel and venture financing and achieve successful liquidity events, such as IPOs and sales. Having served as Executive Vice President of Mergers and Acquisitions for a venture-backed B2B software company that raised over $100 million — and as general counsel for an investment management company that managed billions of dollars — I also know first-hand what it’s like to be inside a growing business. When you work with me you get an experienced partner who knows the entire ecosystem — the law, tech industries, the innovation community, the investment management business, and venture capital firms and other investors. I bring all of that experience together to help clients of every size achieve success.

I spend my free time running half-marathons, participating in bootcamp workouts, studying financial markets, admiring classic cars, and drinking fine wine. I am also dedicated to supporting veterans and serve on the board of REBOOT! National Veterans Transition Service, Inc., a San Diego–based not-for-profit that helps veterans adjust to civilian life and find meaningful employment, and on the board of directors of the USS Midway Museum.
If I weren’t a lawyer, I would be …
Either a venture capitalist or a wine maker, or both!
