Chris McCall Joins Corporate Practice as Partner


Gould & Ratner is pleased to announce that Chris E. McCall has joined the firm as a partner in its Corporate Practice.

McCall advises and represents entrepreneurs, startups, emerging growth and established private companies, venture capital funds and family offices on equity and debt financings, capital raises and securities issuances, mergers and acquisitions, entity selection and formation, complex commercial contracting, intellectual property matters, employment agreements, compliance and nuanced regulatory matters.

“Chris adds significant depth to our group, and our clients will benefit from his broad experience working as an in-house counsel and outside counsel for venture funds and emerging companies,” said Rob Chidester, chair of Gould & Ratner’s Corporate Practice. “We are excited that he’s joining us.”

Given his substantial experience in the boardroom, in the courtroom and as the former chief legal officer for a large, emerging growth company with significant domestic and international operations, McCall regularly serves as — and is sought after to provide — outside general counsel representation to companies on corporate governance, conflicts and fiduciary duties, employment, procurement, intellectual property, operational and other general corporate issues. 

McCall’s clients include technology, health care, software, investment, manufacturing, cannabis, alcohol and beverage, consumer packaged goods and real estate companies. In his role as a fractional or outsourced general counsel, he helps companies, boards and executive leadership teams design and implement thoughtful and practical plans to address significant legal issues in a manner that facilitates, rather than impedes, strategic growth, capital raising, partnerships and joint ventures, and liquidity events. 

McCall earned his J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia.
