I represent clients in general corporate and securities matters, including corporate governance, debt and equity financing, and securities law compliance. I also represent clients in a wide range of corporate transactions, with an emphasis on venture capital and growth equity financings, mergers and acquisitions, and the general representation of both established and emerging growth companies. I routinely advise on the formation, structuring and operation of investment funds, including private equity funds, hedge funds and real estate funds, as well as real estate investment trusts and Delaware statutory trusts. My experience also includes corporate, limited partnership and limited liability company formation and structuring.
I have been fortunate in my career to work with sharp clients who have great ideas, but need guidance to turn those ideas into successful businesses. I work with clients to access our capital markets through public and private securities offerings, formation of investment funds and other investment vehicles and navigation of ancillary or additional securities, corporate finance and fund formation matters. I appreciate that my clients see us as a partner to get to the finish line, rather than a hurdle they have to jump over.
Before joining Winthrop, I worked in the Division of Corporation Finance of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and in the Department of Enforcement of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. I have seen the securities world through both a business and a regulatory lens, which allows me the perspective to approach the issues my clients face pragmatically and practically.
When I’m not at work, I play basketball and golf, try new restaurants around town, and hang out with my French bulldogs.
