Makarechian to Share Tips for Working With Your Board at Silicon Catalyst’s Founders Series

February 27, 2018

O’Melveny partner David Makarechian will present “Working with Your Board of Directors” as part of Silicon Catalyst’s Founders Series on February 27 from 6 to 8:30 pm at O’Melveny’s Silicon Valley office. The event will include a networking reception and Q&A session.

Startups have many challenges, and key among them is knowing how to work with a Board of Directors. The need for guidance shifts dramatically when a company faces critical turning points in its development. A strong outside board of directors can provide the experience and expertise necessary to help solve problems and guide a company’s growth. Makarechian will address the dos and don’ts in establishing a successful relationship with a board so that it becomes an asset rather than a liability.

Makarechian is O’Melveny’s Regional Head of Corporate for Northern California. He is a boardroom-level corporate lawyer who has more than twenty years of experience working with entrepreneurs, executives, and investors to support the growth of innovative technology companies.
