Greg practices in the areas of corporate and business law. He frequently advises clients on business formation; financing; buying and selling; mergers and acquisitions; business disputes; and business transitioning.
Greg represents emerging and established businesses, buyers and investors, primarily in the technology and health care industries, such as software and IT companies, urgent care facilities, home healthcare businesses, assisted living and nursing homes and physician and other healthcare practice groups.
He assists business owners with the full life cycle of their business beginning with formation of the proper business entity, including the creation of operating agreements, partnership agreements and shareholders’ agreements to avoid unpleasant, disruptive and expensive litigation in the event of a dispute among partners. He provides advice and guidance on financing options such as commercial and private lending, venture capital and angel investments, private equity lending and private placement offerings. In the event of a planned or distressed sale of a business, Greg assists with letters of intent, non-disclosure agreements, drafting and negotiation of purchase and sales contracts, the often complex due diligence process (by offering a formalized and non-duplicative approach in assisting the business owner with information gathering and response so owners can continue to operate the business with minimal disruption), and then guides the sale through to closing. Greg’s ability to get to closing smoothly and efficiently and in a manner that pleases all parties has resulted in Greg obtaining numerous clients who have been on the “opposite side” of the closing table. In those cases where business partners reach a point where there is no other answer but to dissolve the business relationship, Greg works aggressively to untangle and dissolve an often complicated business relationship. Greg can assist with the business transition to family or partners or the buy-in to the business by a valued employee or management team and regularly advises his clients on proactive measures to take to ensure smooth transitions.
Greg also advises clients on how to structure transactions in a tax efficient manner. He is well versed in state and federal tax laws as they relate to business transactions, joint ventures, operating agreements, partnerships, LLCs and corporations and is able to provide high level tax research, advice and planning to clients.
Prior to practicing law Greg was an entrepreneur, co-founding and operating a computer technology company and an internet e-commerce company.
