Overview

Hutchison is a boutique law firm that embraces the entrepreneurial spirit and steers technology and life sciences entrepreneurs to success through all stages of their company’s life.

And unlike other firms where it is just one of the things they do, it is the only thing we do, so we understand your technologies and the unique opportunities and challenges you face and are passionate about providing solutions that align with your goals. 

As a result, in our niche there is little we haven’t seen before or dealt with on behalf of our clients. We are efficient and effective and able to provide a lower cost point than law firms with broader practices. We also have deep relationships with a broad network of investors and advisors that help us deliver strategic value to you.

Founded in 1996, we now have offices in Raleigh, NC, Gainesville, FL, and Atlanta, GA. However, it’s not just in RTP or these geographies that we have reach. We spend a considerable amount of time in Tampa, Orlando, Charleston, Wilmington, Charlotte, Blacksburg, Charlottesville and Tucson (see broader list of organizations we are involved in). Through our membership in LawExchange, we can also provide our clients with immediate access to trusted, local legal counsel in Europe, North and South America, the Asia/Pacific and the Middle East.

We invite you to contact us to discuss how you could benefit from having us as your business partner/trusted advisor.

The dedication and execution of your team throughout this process was unbelievable.

Douglas Crumb President & CEO, Xhale, Inc.

Absolute pleasure working with the attorneys at Hutchison. They are knowledgable, creative, efficient and highly responsive. So motivated to make sure the deal went through timely that Robb Giddings worked on it during his vacation!

Lawrence Finn CEO, aaVective, Inc.

Scott was a critical part of our ability to work through the significant dynamics and personalities and we relied on him extensively. Thank you again, we appreciate the service provided by Scott and your firm. Frequently, it was above and beyond.

Tom Finegan Chairman, FoodLogiQ LLC

Justyn and the Hutch team showed flexibility and expertise, to ensure we could get to the finish line. It was a true partnership.

Sean Fitzgerald CEO, Savii, Inc.

We would have never accomplished what we did without Scott's talent and heroics over the past year. He is an outstanding partner who provides brilliant client service. We are honored and blessed to have him on our team.

Faith Kosobucki CFO, FoodLogiQ LLC

I truly felt like Robb was an employee of Amend Surgical and that he had the same passion for closing the deal as I did. This deal would have fallen apart without Robb's expertise and willingness to do whatever was necessary to get us to close.

Robby Lane CEO, Amend Surgical

As a startup going through a recapitalization and transition, Jeremy did a great job of explaining the process and executing it. He was a great thought partner throughout the process, and ensured all the boxes got checked. 

Sean Fitzgerald CEO, Savii, Inc.

I love Hutchison beyond all reasonable limits of plausibility. Sometimes, I feel like I'm on the receiving end of some sort of sociological experiment to push the boundaries of human-to-law firm affection.

Aleksander Levental CEO, Feathr

The area law firm of choice for startup and biotech companies.

John Didsbury CEO, T3D Therapeutics, Inc.

Scott's performance was differentiated and a breath of fresh air compared to what we've seen from other firms. We feel blessed to have his expertise on our team.

Faith Kosobucki CFO, FoodLogiQ LLC

Hutchison has served our small, SaaS company extremely well. We appreciate their insight, attention to detail and responsiveness. I've already referred them to several other companies because of my confidence in their expertise.

Matt Womble CEO, BeeWell

We are very impressed with Hutchison. The team went above and beyond and drafted a great set of legal documents for our early-stage startup.

Hua Wang CEO, SmartBridge, Inc.

So glad that I hired Scott. He is the best! Went above and beyond.

Danielle Leahy Partner, Saltyard

Scott Bryant, Amalie Tuffin and Brandon Huffman were extremely responsive during some critical times of the transaction, being available numerous evenings and weekends. That was much appreciated and greatly facilitated completing the transaction.

Michael Schley CEO, FM:Systems

Nice job, responsive, helpful, on budget. 

Dave Kirkpatrick Managing Director, SJF Ventures

I have always enjoyed working with Justyn and find him to be a thoughtful and intelligent attorney who consistently provides valuable insight and legal advice.

Stephen Mangano Member, GBL Investments

Hutchison consistently delivers the right balance of top notch legal advice and practical experience. Thank you for being such a great partner for myDrugCosts!

Dan Pollard CEO, myDrugCosts

Our deal had more than its share of complications. Dan Fuchs handled them all flawlessly. He was also a master at negotiating between all the parties involved. I have never felt better served or received better advice.

Ray Carey CEO, NeoNova

I am proud of how Hutchison represented our company. The team was responsive and resourceful. They made all the difference in getting the deal done. 

Anthony Pompliano CEO, ANEXIO Technology Services

As a company that has grown over the last seven years from a penurious startup barely able to cover its bills into a successful business bringing outside capital into North Carolina, what we have most appreciated about working with Hutchison is its flexibility. That, and how much we like the people. 

Stephen Fraser Co-founder, Spoonflower

For a start up company, you could not find a better partner and attorney than Helga Leftwich and the Hutchison Law Firm!

Pamela Bunes CEO, EpiEP, Inc.

Our M&A deal would not have resulted in such a positive outcome without Hutchison. The entire team, headed by Fred Hutchison, was very knowledgeable, pragmatic, patient and dedicated throughout the entire M&A process. 

Thuy Dancik Principal, Dancik International

Emily King and Justyn Kasierski did a fantastic job supporting Ziptronix in its recent merger with Tessera, as well as, a variety of other company transactions through the company's history. They are a first class team that I highly recommend!

Richard Gianni CFO, Ziptronix. Inc.
