The goal of Andy Evans's practice is to help start-ups and small businesses grow. It excites him to use the legal framework to enable the true "value creators" of the economy to take their ideas to the next level. He works with them during all phases of their life cycle, and assists with issues such as corporate formation, raising capital, contract drafting and review, protection and development of intellectual property assets, and general corporate advising and strategies. He sees his role as a business attorney to be a partner with the client, striving to creatively solve problems, remove barriers, and identify and mitigate risk.
Before entering practice, Andy took advantage of the University of Colorado Law School's renowned entrepreneurial law program. These offerings served to prepare his skillset to work with small business clients. Among these, he served as Portfolio Manager on the Deming Center Venture Fund--a graduate student-run venture capital firm that invested in front range start-ups, as a student attorney in the Entrepreneurial Law Clinic--where he worked hands-on with start-up clients from the front-range, and as lead Production Editor of the Journal on Telecommunications and High Technology Law (now known as the Colorado Technology Law Journal). Prior to law school, Andy served as a legislative analyst for five years at the California State Controller's Office, where he reviewed legislation and advised on its impact to the department during some of the state's most troublesome financial years.
Andy earned his juris doctorate at the University of Colorado Law School and his bachelor's degree in history from California State University - Sacramento. In his spare time, he enjoys playing hockey, strumming his guitar, following the innovation scene, and skiing.
