Frank, honest advice, even in the face of bad news or less than optimal options, can be hard to find in an attorney. David’s clients know that they can count on him to guide them in a straightforward direction. When the situation calls for it, David provides a global analysis of an issue and is detailed in his investigative and problem-solving plans. On the other hand, when a simple issue requires an easy response, David’s clients appreciate that he doesn’t overcomplicate the answer.

As a member of our Corporate Practice Group, David has a broad understanding and appreciation for the complexities that a transaction may entail and enjoys working with clients who will allow for global analysis, detailed investigation and problem-solving when the situation calls for it. He prepares and negotiates operating agreements, contribution agreements and other miscellaneous transaction documents for a variety of businesses. He serves clients in various industries including, beverage distribution, real estate development, and professional and consulting services. He represents clients in connection with a wide variety of acquisitive and dispositive transactions, such as mergers, acquisitions, asset purchases and sales, redemption, and stock and other capital investments. He guides his clients through the entirety of complex business transactions from the negotiation and preparation letters of intent and definitive agreements, through due diligence, closing and post-closing obligations.
