For over 20 years I have lawyered from the trenches with experience based on a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of how both for-profit and nonprofit enterprises operate. I guide entrepreneurs, executive management teams, boards of directors, multigenerational families, shareholders and investors through all aspects of the business life cycle from formation to operation to exit.
I provide legal services to many sectors of the economy. I work with social ventures, private and public companies, limited liability companies and partnerships, nonprofit organizations and cooperatives. I help my clients navigate through general business matters, corporate governance, debt and equity financing, purchase and sales, SEC and IRS compliance, business strategy joint ventures and complex reorganizations.
I bring an extensive set of entity and contract tools to help business owners, managers and families navigate through the succession of a business from one or more owner/operators to the next set of owners, with special attention to professional service businesses that may or may not be outright salable.
In the nonprofit sector, I have worked with all types of organizations ranging from public charities and private foundations to trade associations, churches and religious organizations and have counseled them through every intricacy of the nonprofit business life cycle.
In addition to deep legal experience, I bring a breadth of leadership experience to the table for all my clients regardless of sector, purpose or goals. I serve a diverse group of clients on matters involving Benefit Corporations, Business Corporations, Business Strategy and Complex Succession Planning, Cooperatives, Corporate Governance, Debt and Equity Financing, Joint Ventures and Complex Reorganizations, Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships and S Corporations, Non-Profit and Tax-Exempt Organizations, Purchases and Sales of Businesses, SEC and IRS Compliance, Social Enterprises, Private and Public Companies and Employment Law.
