My legal practice encompasses a wide variety of corporate, finance, and real estate matters. In my corporate practice, I have worked extensively with entrepreneurs and emerging companies on all aspects of their businesses, including company formation, business planning, mergers and acquisitions, vendor and customer contracts, corporate governance, debt and equity financings, and securities offerings. In addition, I have represented investment advisors, securities brokers, hedge funds, private equity funds, and real estate partnership syndicators in numerous private offerings of securities and in ongoing compliance. Prior to returning to private practice, I served as the general counsel to a private investment fund manager.
In my real estate practice, I have participated in property acquisitions, mortgage financings, and commercial leasing matters throughout the United States. I have represented developers, governmental entities, life insurance companies, banks, and owners of malls, shopping centers, industrial parks, and office towers. I have worked on a number of transactions involving the syndication of real estate partnerships, advising sponsors on both real estate and securities issues. I have also advised securities firms as underwriter's counsel on several tax-exempt bond offerings.
