Jeff Craven advises entrepreneurs, CEOs and general counsel on corporate structuring, the formation and financing of domestic and international transactions, mergers and acquisitions, FCC licensing and regulatory matters, and government contracting.
Over his 30-year career, Jeff has been a business owner, general counsel, and outside legal advisor. In his various roles he has developed and implemented business plans, raised capital, and hired outside counsel. Jeff has extensive experience in the technology, telecom, satellite, and energy sectors and regularly advises on transactions that contribute to his clients’ growth, including private equity, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and technology licensing.
Jeff serves not only as legal counsel but also as a business advisor to his clients. He helps them establish effective business structures as well as strategic partnerships that further the organizational goals of both parties, therefore by devising “win-win” outcomes.
For example, upon hearing a friend’s aspirations to start his own company, Jeff suggested that he leverage his service-disabled veteran status to start his own government contracting business. In a matter of days, Jeff helped him define his mission, develop a business plan, arrange funding, and incorporate his new business entity. The business was launched months later, and within nine years, it became a $250 million company and remains a current client.
An advocate for children, Jeff is on the Board of Second Story (formerly Alternative House) , which provides shelter, counseling, and crisis intervention for at-risk youth and was a founding member of the Fairfax Partnership for Youth as well as the LeTendre Education Fund for Homeless Children.
