I represent businesses and their owners in a variety of different spaces, ranging from agriculture, construction and real estate development all the way to emerging technology, venture capital and financial services. The diversity of the clients I work for and the issues they present me with make me well-equipped to provide you practical legal advice on all matters pertaining to your business.
My specific expertise is in structuring, negotiating and documenting merger and acquisition (“M&A”) transactions. In the past few years, I’ve served as lead or associate counsel on a variety of M&A transactions, ranging in value from $5,000 to over $28 million. I’ve also assisted with the drafting of numerous partnership agreements, operating agreements, buy-sell agreements, partner buy-out agreements and joint venture agreements. I stick by my clients every step of the way, helping them plan for and assess business opportunities and transactions throughout the enterprise life cycle, from formation and operations through transition by succession, sale or dissolution.
I take your interests personally and will fight for you in the trenches on important issues with respect to any given transaction. With that being said, my legal strategy always takes into consideration the main reason you hired me: to close your deal as efficiently as possible while protecting your interests at the same time. My ability to identify and control items that are important and provide you the most value as opposed to those items that provide you very little practical benefit is my greatest asset to you.
I received my undergraduate education at Creighton University’s Heider College of Business, where I graduated, magna cum laude. I then attended Creighton University’s School of Law, where I received my J.D., magna cum laude.
