Mario M. Kranjac
Founding Partner, General Counsel
For 25 years, Mario Kranjac has been counseling privately held businesses in law and business matters relating to mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, raising of capital, securities, asset-based and project financing, technology licensing, contracts, and commercial transactions. Kranjac Tripodi & Partners LLP provides focused advice to both investors and entrepreneurs from inception through to negotiation of partner separation and liquidity events, providing value every step of the way.
One of Mr. Kranjac’s key achievements is his own experience as a successful firm founder, partner and entrepreneur, representing clients on a number of business matters from transactional mergers and acquisitions, employment issues, trademark matters and turnarounds on liquidity sales. Having seen the challenges of small businesses firsthand has influenced his unique perspective when providing guidance and counsel to clients and Dynamk portfolio companies. Mario’s business ideals can be summed up with “start small, finish big”. Having seen businesses all along the spectrum from great products and strong management, to businesses in need of concrete advice for developing products, and expansion needs, this team has the experience to know what works and what does not.
Mr. Kranjac is an active speaker on topics related to innovation, entrepreneurship and business law, including his recent participation in the Financial Times Innovate America conference "Reinventing Opportunity: Corporations, Machines and Humans" in New York City, December 2014, and is a regular contributor on Fox News.
Mr. Kranjac has a depth of expertise in real estate through his representation of both individual investors and property management firms, including experience in navigating tax issues that apply to foreign ownership of US based real estate. His diverse network in a number of sectors, including subject matter experts, innovators and management teams, provides an even deeper pool of resources for Dynamk Capital to draw upon for our portfolio companies.
