Jesse Okiror is a skilled trial lawyer and trusted legal advisor who specializes in representing entrepreneurs, business leaders, and startups.

Drawing on his dual backgrounds as a lawyer and startup founder, Jesse understands the challenges of growing a business and the legal obstacles that entrepreneurs encounter. Having taken the entrepreneurial journey himself, Jesse is a fierce advocate for those with the courage and work ethic to build things that create value for customers, investors, and this world we all share. To those individuals and their businesses, Jesse offers zealous representation when facing active litigation and insightful counsel when navigating legal questions impacting growth. Throughout, Jesse matches his clients’ entrepreneurial spirit, innovative thinking, results-driven mindset, and (above all) optimism.

As a trial lawyer, Jesse takes on the highest-stakes disputes in which his clients’ business, reputation, and livelihood are under attack from a competitor, a former partner, or any other ill-intentioned bad actor. With years of experience practicing at prestigious litigation firms and taking cases to trial, Jesse is optimally equipped to handle partnership break-ups, business divorces, contract disputes, breaches of fiduciary duty, attempted squeeze-outs, forced buyouts, hostile takeovers, shareholder oppression, fraud, business disparagement, defamation, and officer or director liability.

As a legal advisor and counselor, Jesse is the first call for clients whenever a legal issue arises—day or night, weekday or weekend. Drawing on his experience as Founder of a tech startup and General Counsel to another tech startup, Jesse is poised to assess legal challenges quickly and advise on next steps, whether that means filing a lawsuit or finding a creative solution to kill the problem quickly and get back to business.

In his spare time, Jesse enjoys cooking up delicious and nourishing meals for his wife, Vyna, and their two kids. On weekends, he keeps the whole family active (and tires his kids out) with hiking excursions, youth sports, and yard work.
