Headshot 11 v.2

Nella Bloom, Managing Member

As outside general counsel, I help small and new businesses throughout their business life cycle, from startup to shut-down. For example:
(1) Prospective business owners need advice on where to base their companies, how to divide equity, and what types of protection they require when starting up;
(2) Later-stage businesses need contracts and advice about funding or collections; and
(3) End-stage companies need a trusted advisor to help them work through asset sales, business divorces, bankruptcies, or dissolutions.

My practice is unique, since my clients represent an eclectic mix of industries and sectors, in different parts of their life cycles. In addition to helping start new businesses, I work with companies in the throes of buying another entity, as well as those selling their assets or closing down. I’m a business owner myself, so I deeply understand the mindset of an entrepreneur, and the personal aspect of being a business owner.  Even in my time off, I am an entrepreneur. I’m the Sponsorship Chair of Women Owned Law, a national professional association that officially launched in January of 2017.

I am licensed to practice in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, and I’m a frequent presenter on issues relating to small and emerging business and corporate bankruptcy. My recent presentations include”Starting Up a New Business: What Everyone Should Know” with Timothy Carroll, CPA, of Drucker & Scaccetti; “I had a great month but I can’t pay my bills; what now?” with John Capizzi, Principal of Internal Audit Services Inc., International; and solo presentation “Philadelphia’s Distressed Properties: What Are My Investment Options?” My articles have been published in the New York Law Journal, The Legal Intelligencer, and the Mid Atlantic Real Estate Journal, and most recently I was a contributing author to the hot-off-the-press The New ROI: Return on Individuals, now available on Amazon.

I’m a 2001 cum laude graduate of Hamilton College and a 2006 graduate of Syracuse University College of Law. At Syracuse, I was a Dean’s Scholar and served on the Law Review as Lead Articles Editor. I’m a native Philadelphian and I live in the East Passyunk neighborhood with my family.
