Founder Focus

Pearce provides founder-led companies with leadership support and top-level strategy, a thousand-foot view to help guide the entrepreneur.

Founders are typically short on time, capital and specific experience. Pearce helps founders organize and prioritize in the face of competing demands, recognize and avoid potential pitfalls, and seize upon opportunities to grow better, faster.

A founder’s interests often come into conflict with the company’s interests as the business evolves, whether from changing investor relationships, growth initiatives, shifting roles/responsibilities, succession or otherwise. Pearce helps clients realign or otherwise resolve diverging interests and confront other business challenges that come with change.

With a client list that reads like a who’s who of the fashion world, New York lawyer Betsy Pearce is the consummate industry insider. Her ability to navigate the process of placing value on creativity has positioned her as one of the most sought after advisors in the business.
