Founding Partner, Pinto Legal

My name is Fred Pinto, and I’ve been an IP, technology, and business lawyer and entrepreneur for the last 20 years.

I founded my own law firm, Pinto Legal, over a decade ago to pursue my life’s passion: designing the best legal and business strategies to support innovative entrepreneurs in their journeys.

Over the course of my career, I learned that while every entrepreneur eventually does exit their business, only a chosen few end up with the exit that best suits their broader life goals. This is because high-quality exits require preparation, patience, strategy, and discipline – along with a truly human-centric approach – things that aren’t always in high supply in the transactional “M&A” space.

That’s why I created Fit to Exit: so that every entrepreneur can have the tools and strategies they need to design their ideal exit, efficiently and realistically. It leverages decades of experience and knowledge from not only myself but from several highly seasoned professionals including tax lawyers and accountants, business valuators, life planning experts, professional investors, and dozens of entrepreneurs, many of whom have achieved their own high-quality exits.

The result is a simplified but highly professional multidisciplinary program that includes videos you can watch and learn from at your own pace, checklists, flow charts, legal templates, and a digital data room designed so you can get ready for any level of due diligence.

The program comes in various formats – from shorter, accelerated versions, to the full version, to versions that come with professional consulting services from a team of lawyers and exit consultants who can assist you through the entire process.

It’s all designed so you, the founder, have everything you need to identify your ideal exit strategy, and the concrete legal and business tools to actually carry it out.

I wish you the very best in your journey, and feel free to get started by filling up our exit survey in preparation for a free exit consultation, or to sign up to receive our free PDF on the top 5 mistakes entrepreneurs make in preparing for their exits!
