Yev Muchnik

Senior Of Counsel

Technology can be a great equalizer, if used in an ethical manner, which is what drove me to my passion of working with startups and growth stage companies primarily in the field of technology. I’m passionate about challenging the status quo and working with like-minded people.

Yev Muchnik is an experienced transactional and securities attorney with a focus on early and growth stage, mission-forward technology companies innovating across different sectors. Yev is motivated by unconventional companies led by entrepreneurs that challenge the status quo and considers herself to be somewhat of a legal practitioner mongrel, in that she is an entrepreneur at heart and has recently tested the waters with early state investing.

Yev is driven by innovation across all sectors and is an early adopter, particularly drawn to new shiny tech gadgets (down the rabbit hole of VR currently). Her two boys, Ronan and Toby, keep her on her toes when she’s not working! They love exploring Colorado and are also avid travelers.
