Bye, Bye BigLaw: National Co-Chair at Fox Rothschild Leaves BigLaw Behind to Join Barton

Barton LLP
New York, New York

Barton welcomes Randolph K. Adler, Jr. as the Co-chair of the firm’s Emerging Companies and Venture Capital Practice.

Randy is a nationally recognized leader in emerging growth companies and venture capital.  He represents businesses in all stages of development as well as investors seeking opportunities in today’s innovation economy. From entity formation and financing – seed, early-stage and late-stage venture capital and private equity – to public offerings and mergers and acquisitions, he guides his clients through the full corporate life cycle.

Randy’s industry experience is vast and spans a wide range, from the traditional to the innovative, including augmented reality/virtual reality, beauty, consumer packaged goods, cybersecurity, digital media and advertising, e-sports, fintech, food & beverage, hardware, healthcare, internet of things, machine learning, PropTech, and software as a service (SaaS).

When asked his motivation to make this move, Randy replied, “The BigLaw model just doesn’t fit my innovative clientele anymore. Clients want lawyers and firms with the sophistication of the AmLaw 50 and the collaborative spirit of an entrepreneur. Barton’s model is already incredibly successful and continues to flourish because it provides my clients with exactly what they’ve been asking for over the past year. I can’t believe a firm like Barton actually exists.”

Managing Partner Roger E. Barton was quick to point out, “Randy is a perfect fit inside the Barton model. Even in the pandemic, we continue to bolster our team by attracting and retaining major BigLaw talent because of our client-driven platform. Randy is an incredible addition to our Emerging Companies and Venture Capital practice.”

“Barton brings the best elements of a law firm in under one roof,” Randy went on to say. “You have sophisticated partner-level expertise and work product mixed with a welcoming, entrepreneurial, collaborative environment. My clients are of the same mindset. It’s a winning formula.”

Randy began his legal career at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP before creating RK ADLER, LLP.  After the success RK ADLER led to its merger with Dentons LLP, Randy joined Fox Rothschild as the National Co-chair of the Emerging Companies & Venture Capital Practice Group.
