I have always been an entrepreneurial-minded attorney and have always wanted to focus on bridging the gap between practical business answers and legal compliance. My experience, education, and personality has provided me the opportunities to develop into a business adviser who is equipped to navigate complex legal hurdles as well as make tough strategic business decisions. I really enjoy working with small to mid-market companies during their transitional phases. I have worked successfully with both public and private companies, investors, and financial advisors to organize, structure, and execute on mergers or cash-out transactions. I have represented startups and emerging companies in virtually every industry, including technology, aerospace, manufacturing, services, and retail. I have managed successfully a number of startup financings, beginning with formation and initial capitalization, continuing with capital raising and commercialization through debt or public offerings. Whether reviewing corporate formation documents or maintaining corporate board meeting minutes and stock records; I enjoy advising the C-suite executives in a “general counsel” capacity and providing legal compliance and structure to an often chaotic and competitive environment.
