About Me

Brian Alford

UT Austin B.A., Columbia J.D.  I’m an Emerging Companies partner at MEMN, out of Austin, where I represent leading early-stage/middle-market CPG and technology companies. MEMN is a top-tier corporate & commercial boutique law firm focused on providing emerging companies access to world class counsel, without the inefficiencies and inertia of large, traditional law firms.

Spending a lot of time in both the CPG and Tech space, I noticed that there’s a big gap between the two in terms of information available online. There’s an entire online ecosystem of useful info for tech entrepreneurs, but very little for CPG.  There are unique legal and financing issues faced by CPG companies that are very different from other startups, and CPG Startup Lawyer will (hopefully) become a go-to resource for CPG entrepreneurs to educate themselves and avoid pitfalls.
