The best part of working on transactions is helping my clients accomplish something truly important to them, even if the odds may be stacked against us. Our core clients are successful entrepreneurs who are mission driven and results oriented. I firmly believe we must meet – and even try to exceed – their drive and energy, dedicating our efforts to achieving their goals.
One of my strengths has always been clear and direct communication. For me, this starts, of course, with listening to our clients’ aspirations and truly understanding their businesses. I strive to provide very timely responses in plain English, not tied up in legalese, working through the business impact of obstacles they face and the legal solutions we offer. And I truly mean solutions – anyone can identify problems, but we understand our clients are always looking for answers.
Outside of work, I love spending time with friends and family (including my adopted farm cat). I also invest more love in the Minnesota Vikings than they return to me.
I represent clients in connection with a wide range of business and corporate M&A matters, including drafting and reviewing contracts and agreements, due diligence, corporate structuring, and negotiation. I also have experience with corporate securities and general corporate work including entity formation, drafting articles/certificates of incorporation, operating agreements, and company bylaws.
