Q&A
  • What types of clients do you represent?

    In the area of mergers and acquisitions, I represent clients from heavily regulated sectors, including independent power production and healthcare. I also represent target companies, private equity funds and equity investors in a variety of investment transactions. On economic development projects, I represent clients on both the locality and private industry sides of projects.

  • What type of matters do you work on most often?
    My primary area of focus has been on mergers and acquisitions in large scale deals, specializing in auction-based transactions. I guide my clients through the due diligence and negotiation processes and execution of definitive purchase and sale agreements. In addition to transactional guidance, I work with my clients on general corporate governance and financing matters on an ongoing basis.  I am also involved in our state’s economic development efforts, analyzing incentives and assisting clients in attracting new and existing businesses to Alabama.
