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