I work with businesses and their owners to form new companies, choose the appropriate type of entity, create equity compensation plans for stock options and restricted stock, and bring in financing from angel investors and venture capital firms. As a mergers and acquisitions attorney, I keep the exit in mind from the beginning.
It’s exciting to help founders sell their companies and finally see all of their hard work pay off in a measurable way. I have also represented private equity firms in their purchase and sale of portfolio companies.
I have a graduate degree in tax law, and I add value by explaining (in plain English) the federal income tax issues that businesses and individuals encounter at startup, as they grow, and at the exit stage.
