Meet Troy

Troy Nehring

Legal Officer

With almost two decades as an accomplished legal professional under his belt, Troy draws upon a breadth of experience as an attorney and as a small business owner. He leverages a deep knowledge of simple and complex business matters to create sustainable legal strategies for startups and small businesses.

Actionable insights with big impact for startups and small business

Troy is a seasoned attorney and entrepreneur. For over 18 years, he has worked with a variety of small and large businesses at various stages of growth. After successfully managing his own practice for seven years, he was recruited by a former client that had merged with Baker Tilly, a large multinational professional services firm.
