Today I focus my practice on three main areas, assisting clients with a variety of complex transactions.
I work with public and private companies in a variety of industries, including food and beverage, health care, energy, and high-tech manufacturing, on various mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations, and divestitures.
Clients turn to me to assist with the negotiation and maintenance of various service and supply agreements and other commercial contracts.
I provide startup companies with strategic advice on the business entity formation process and have represented established companies and startups in connection with public and private equity offerings.
