What do you focus on?

I focus my practice on corporate and finance matters. I assist companies with all aspects of entity formation and also have experience in drafting operating, shareholders and buy-sell agreements. In addition, I advise clients in relation to daily legal issues, such as responding to or preparing vendor agreements, noncompetition or confidentiality agreements and similar contracts. I counsel clients in the negotiation of business acquisitions, mergers and sales, and manage due diligence for corporate transactions. I facilitate private securities placements including drafting private placement memoranda and related documents as well as preparing and filing necessary documentation with applicable federal and state regulatory authorities.

What do you see on the horizon?

As more information regarding companies reaches the World Wide Web, this company information is becoming increasingly searchable and, as a result, companies must be more aware of unintended public attention on previously private activities. This is especially relevant in the area of private securities placements, as the availability of federal-required filings on public databases allows third parties to search for, find and publicize information on such a private offering.
