I counsel public and private companies of all sizes on a variety of corporate and business law matters, including, but not limited to, entity formation, organizational documents, preparation of vendor agreements, negotiating and preparing commercial contracts, licensing, and corporate governance. I help my clients address complex commercial issues using thoughtful legal solutions to protect their interests while maintaining and maximizing their relationships with vendors, suppliers, shareholders, and customers. My client base spans across many industries, ranging from food and beverage to lenders to cannabis to professional services, education, and health care.
I also counsel clients in the negotiation and management of business acquisitions, mergers, and sales. I represent both targets and acquirers in these transactions and work to help my clients manage risk between parties to these agreements to maximize profit and ensure successful closings. In each transaction, my focus is on acting as a team member and resource for my clients every step of the way to accomplish their objectives in a thorough and efficient manner.
As a former Teach for America teacher turned lawyer, I have represented a number of charter schools in all areas of operation from startup to dissolution. This includes corporate governance and compliance, formation, tax exempt status (obtaining and maintaining), real estate (leasing, purchase/development, and financing), education corporation mergers, education services (management) agreements, “Friends Of” organizations, application renewal, and regulatory affairs. With the assistance of the firm’s Nonprofit team, I am well equipped to help your school navigate the legal and political hurdles charter schools face on a daily basis, so you can maximize what is most important, ensuring an alternative quality education for your students.
Small businesses and middle-market companies require a fresh, inventive perspective in this “new normal.” As customer, clients, distributors, vendors, lenders, employees, and investors acclimate to recent global economic and political shifts, businesses large and small need careful legal guidance, particularly in areas surrounding corporate structure, workplace safety, cybersecurity, licensing, and restructuring and reprioritizing business models with an intersectional lens.
