Attorney, Member of the Firm
Alan Roth's wide and deep corporate law experience representing closely and publicly-held, well-established and start-up, for-profit and non-profit businesses in many industries (though mostly tech) has enabled him to consistently close deals for his clients, both as buyers and sellers, on the best possible terms. Alan also has significant experience in the government contracts arena, representing many of our clients with respect to the classification of contracts under the FARs and DFARs and the applicability and meaning of their contract clauses both in the tech context and for other commercial services and products.
Before joining Outside GC, Alan was VP and GC at Cambridge Technology Enterprises, a high-tech incubator that spun off companies including Cambridge Technology Partners, i-Cube, OneWave, and C-Bridge Internet Solutions. In addition to corporate governance and operational matters, Alan's specialty was working closely with the sales departments of start-ups to close contracts on profitable terms with customers in the US and abroad. Prior to CTE, Alan was an associate with Bingham McCutchen and Hemenway and Barnes in Boston.
Alan graduated Amherst College magna cum laude, has a master's degree in Journalism from Columbia University, and took his JD at Stanford Law School.
His pro bono activities include obtaining 501(c)(3) status for PTOs in Newton, Massachusetts and incorporating and advising Theatre Ink, Newton North High School's award-winning teaching and theater program. He is a recipient of the Denis Maguire Pro Bono Award from the Boston Bar Association.
He lives in Newton with his wife and is enjoying the empty nest so far.
