As a transaction attorney, I represent clients on a broad spectrum of issues with a focus on mergers and acquisitions, general business matters, and state and local taxation. My passion for transactional work comes from my accounting background, which allows me to understand the underpinnings of your business.

 

I strive to build lasting relationships with my clients as I assist you through the lifecycle of your business; from initial formation through dissolution or sale of the company. Because I take the time to learn about your company, I make it a priority to understand your needs and goals. I will work with you to ensure you make the right business decisions.
