I enjoy working in the emerging company and venture capital space because I’m surrounded by smart people and interesting ideas.

R.J. Kornhaas advises early-stage companies as well as privately and publicly held middle-market companies on corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, venture capital and debt financing, commercial agreements, governance, and general corporate matters. R.J. is Co-Chair of the Family Office and Strategic Investments Practice Group. He also counsels family offices and high net-worth individuals in connection with venture capital investments.

R.J. enjoys working with companies at various stages of development, and guiding founders and new companies as they grow. He serves clients in industries including tech, life sciences, financial services, manufacturing, digital media, consumer products, and food and beverage.

R.J. lives in Wilton with his wife and two children. His favorite non-work activities are to play golf and cheer for Notre Dame.
