Venture Law Group (A)

by Thomas J. DeLong, Ashish Nanda and Scott D Landry

Abstract

Craig Johnson, Venture Law Group's (VLG) chairman, founded VLG in 1993 with a goal of "zero voluntary turnover." In late 1998, Johnson faces the departure of three important partners, prompting himself to ask what VLG can do in the midst of an "economic hurricane" that is luring VLG attorneys to leave and enter dot.com companies.
