I am a corporate and securities attorney who focuses on representing emerging growth companies throughout their life cycle and the investors and strategic acquirers who invest in or acquire such companies. My practice concentrates on equity and debt financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate law and the issues that fast-growing companies face on a daily basis. I spend much of my time not only handling a variety of company-changing transactions, but counseling entrepreneurs, management teams and board members through a variety of strategic opportunities and corporate governance decisions. I have completed numerous mergers and acquisitions and joint venture transactions and hundreds of equity and debt financings. I feel fortunate that I have the opportunity to work with and support incredibly smart and talented individuals and teams as they develop exciting new technologies and science and healthcare solutions.
On a personal level, I moved to Southern California almost 20 years ago after growing up Cincinnati and spending my undergraduate years at Northwestern University and attending The University of Michigan Law School. My wife and I are fortunate to have two wonderful daughters whom I get to drive to school on a daily basis and watch on the soccer field on weekends. As a family, we share a love of sports, in particular college football and Major League Baseball.
