Wyatt specializes in the representation of growth companies and investors in the venture capital space. He has vast experience working with companies in numerous industries, throughout all stages of their lifecycles, from providing strategic guidance prior to formation, to counseling companies through various fundraising stages and eventual exit events. From complex or unique transactions, to day-to-day legal and corporate governance matters, Wyatt is adept at helping companies navigate the broad range of legal issues that start-ups face as they evolve and grow. The companies he has represented range from unfunded, newly formed companies to multi-billion-dollar “unicorns,” and span a wide variety of tech industries, including the software, logistics, medical device, biotech, telecommunications, and entertainment technology sectors.
In addition to counseling start-up companies, Wyatt also represents investors, ranging from angels to venture capital firms. His familiarity and experience with start-ups positions him to provide insightful counsel to outside investors looking to invest in emerging growth companies.
Wyatt also still holds on to his early roots as a trusts and estates lawyer, helping clients with tax and estate planning needs.
Prior to joining Breakwater Law Group, Wyatt was a senior corporate associate at Gunderson Dettmer, where he specialized in venture financings, M&A transactions, and corporate governance matters. Before that, he was a tax and estate planning attorney at McKenna Long and Aldridge (which later merged with Dentons).
Wyatt received his BA in Mass Communications from the University of California, Berkeley, and attended law school at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, where he served as the Senior Executive Editor of the Berkeley Technology Law Journal.
