Charles Torres, Imri Eisner & Adam Brenner Placed at DLA Piper New York  

Whistler Partner Placements | August 18, 2020

Whistler Partners is pleased to announce the placement of Charles Torres, Imri Eisner and Adam Brenner as Emerging Growth and Venture Capital partners at DLA Piper in their New York office.

Torres is a trusted advisor to emerging growth companies and their founders and directors. As outside general counsel, he works with a diverse range of companies, particularly those focused on financial services technology, enterprise software, IoT, social and digital media, e-commerce, healthcare technology and advertising technology. Torres also regularly counsels leading venture capital funds, corporate VCs and family offices with respect to their investments and dispositions. He brings a wealth of experience in the New York venture community, as counsel to dozens of exited founders and venture investors and as a long-time passionate contributor to the ecosystem. He currently is a lecturer at both Columbia Business School and Cornell Tech, and the co-founder of the Startup Law Studio at Columbia Business School. He is an active member of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and the founder (and former chair) of its Emerging Companies Committee.

Eisner represents emerging growth companies and institutional investors—including venture capital funds, corporate VCs, and family offices—in equity and debt investments, buy-side and sell-side M&A transactions, and corporate governance matters. Over the course of his career, Eisner has represented venture-backed companies and top-tier funds in hundreds of financings, exit events, restructurings and recapitalizations, and has become a trusted counsel in complex, cross-border and high-value transactions, including contentious board matters and distressed circumstances. Eisner is fluent in Hebrew and regularly represents Israeli start-ups in New York.

Brenner focuses on representing innovative, institutionally backed companies, with extensive experience in equity and debt financings, mergers and acquisitions and general corporate governance. He also represents venture capital funds in their deployment of capital. While Brenner represents companies in a variety of industry verticals, he has particular experience advising emerging companies with international operations on regulatory matters relating to national security and in international trade. Brenner is also a co-founder of the non-profit Accelerate Yale, a global community of alumni and friends of Yale who are engaged in innovation, tech and entrepreneurship.
