Biography

Wright Lewis provides legal guidance to startups, entrepreneurs, and small and medium-sized enterprises, helping them navigate business-related legal challenges from entity formation through exit. Wright’s practice is focused on debt and equity financing (seed and growth capital from friends and family, angel investors, and venture capital firms) and business sales, mergers, and acquisitions. He also provides counsel on matters throughout the business life-cycle, including entity formation, corporate governance, contracts, stock and options plans, and succession planning.

Wright grew up in Loudoun County, Virginia where he currently resides with his wife and son. When he’s not advising clients, you can find Wright on two wheels (mountain bike or motorcycle), at the gym, or researching investment opportunities. Wright is ASA Bareboat Certified (Monohull and Catamaran) and wants to obtain a private pilot’s license one day.
