I really enjoy looking at the nuances in laws and regulations and working with clients to meet their compliance obligations, while finding creative solutions to move their business forward. That’s what I like about my corporate work, too. Transactional work enables me to help businesses get off the ground, make acquisitions that enable the business to grow and prosper, or witness the fruits of many years of work that make possible a transition to new owners.
