What do you focus on?

In addition to my general corporate work, I focus my practice on working with clients in three principal areas:

Mergers and Acquisitions

I work with companies of all sizes and advise them on strategic opportunities related to their businesses. I assist my clients in the negotiation and preparation of both stock and asset purchase agreements, formation of joint ventures and private equity transactions.

Public Finance

I serve as bond counsel, underwriter’s counsel and borrower’s counsel in connection with the issuance of tax-exempt and taxable revenue bonds for nonprofit institutions including hospitals, colleges and private secondary schools.  I have worked closely with states, state agencies and other governmental entities in various public finance matters.

I work with clients on negotiating, drafting and reviewing complex loan and trust agreements and master indentures, including multi-modal structures with various forms of credit enhancement, public offering documents and closing documentation.

Securities

I offer extensive experience advising publicly traded companies on compliance with SEC rules, NYSE and NASDAQ exchange requirements and other securities laws and regulations.

What do you see on the horizon?

I believe clients are going to see big changes in international trade regulations, which will impact how they do business. New policies could cause companies to close international operations and move those operations to the United States in order to avoid tariffs and adverse tax consequences. While it will benefit employment in the United States, it could negatively impact revenue for some companies as a result of increased operational costs.
