Ted Howell

Ted went to law school at Boston University School of Law, where he graduated, cum laude, in 1999. He took a position with Testa, Hurwitz & Thibeault LLP, where he focused his practice on dot.com companies, providing them services relating to formation, shareholder issues, equity financing, licensing, mergers and acquisitions, and IPOs. After TH&T, Ted took a position with a small, Providence, RI – based firm, where he focused his practice on shareholder agreements, contract negotiation, debt financing, asset protection, business succession planning and mergers and acquisitions.

In 2005, Ted commenced practice at Partridge Snow & Hahn LLP, where he practiced until May 2014. At PSH, Ted became partner and chair of the corporate group. He continued the practice that he had engaged in prior to PSH, but was involved in more complicated merger and acquisition, as well as debt finance, transactions. During his tenure at PSH, Ted also got more involved in the start-up community, which eventually led to the formation of Howell Legal. He was integral to the adoption of the RI-CIE office hour program, which resulted in acting as counsel to a large percentage of the companies participating in the Betaspring accelerator program.

Today, his clients run the gamut from large companies with hundreds of millions of dollars in annual revenues to the earliest stage, pre-revenue start-up. His passion is getting to know the client and the client’s business, and integrating himself in a team approach to the provision of legal services.
