Ben Hron is a business law attorney whose practice focuses on representing companies on general corporate matters, debt and equity financing, mergers and acquisitions, securities law compliance and joint ventures. Ben also represents private equity and venture capital funds, angel investors and financial institutions in connection with the financing of public and private companies.

Ben serves as outside general counsel for a number of his clients, advising company management on legal issues ranging from day-to-day matters to large strategic initiatives. He also coordinates and supervises the work of experts in other practice areas when appropriate. In addition to working with established companies, Ben has extensive experience working with entrepreneurs and startups, often getting involved when a business is still in its infancy and helping guide the founders through the formative early stages of their company's development. The experience of co-founding and growing his own law firm, VC Ready Law Group, from 2009 to 2011 has helped Ben better understand and address the issues facing many of his clients.

As counsel to investors and financial institutions, Ben helps structure and negotiate debt and equity financing transactions, including venture capital, growth capital, asset-based loans and distressed debt workouts. He also frequently writes and lectures on the laws and regulations governing financing transactions and recent trends in deal terms.

Ben was co-chair of the Securities Law Committee of the Boston Bar Association from 2013 to 2015 and co-chair of the BBA’s Venture Capital and Emerging Companies Committee from 2015 to 2017. He also hosts the McCarter & English seminar series for entrepreneurs at the Cambridge Innovation Center.

Ben received a Juris Doctor from Harvard and a Bachelor of Arts (magna cum laude) in Biology and Political Science from Carleton College. He is admitted to practice law in Massachusetts.
