Denise DeArmond

Denise DeArmond is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s M&A and Corporate Transactions practice group. Denise represents businesses in commercial transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, and advises clients on general corporate matters and corporate governance.

What do you focus on?


I counsel public and private companies on corporate and business law matters, with a focus on providing strategically drafted agreements, organizational documents, and resolutions. Working with companies in a variety of industries, I assist clients by providing early risk detection and due diligence in middle- and upper-market M&A transactions.

Nonprofit Entities

I counsel nonprofits and private foundations on corporate governance matters, transactions, and restructuring. I also help clients start foundations and secure tax exempt status.

General Corporate Practice

I advise early stage companies on choice of entity, entity formation, and general corporate law matters.

What do you see on the horizon?

Both the United States and foreign governments are increasing their scrutiny of cross-border transactions. I expect this trend to increase in the foreseeable future. For strategic buyers and equity investors, this poses an additional hurdle to consummating deals.
