DESCRIPTION OF PRACTICE:

I founded the Firm in 1989.  My practice focuses on counseling clients about the legal and business aspects of forming, acquiring, owning, and operating businesses, taking advantage of my business, finance, securities, tax and litigation experience.

I have extensive experience in the business, securities and tax law aspects of buying and selling businesses and assets of all types, including project management and lead attorney experience in mergers, consolidations, stock swaps, and asset and stock acquisitions and dispositions for corporations, individuals, limited partnerships, general partnerships and limited liability companies.

I have created, documented and closed complex financings using debt (e.g., revolving lines of credit, term loans, letter of credit facilities, bonds and debentures, and convertible instruments) and equity instruments (common and preferred stock, interests in limited liability companies, joint ventures, and limited and general partnerships) for businesses ranging from sole proprietorships to New York Stock Exchange listed companies. I have also successfully used strategic and entrepreneurial partnerships as well as tax and leveraged leasing transactions to assist clients in accomplishing business objectives.

I have been securities counsel to issuers and underwriters of securities in public offerings and private placements of securities under federal law and Blue Sky laws. My experience includes drafting disclosure documents (i.e. private placement memoranda and prospectuses) and handling required reporting to the appropriate regulatory bodies.

In addition, I have substantial experience in all aspects of leasing, acquiring, financing and selling real estate and I have extensive experience in taxable and tax exempt lease financings.
