He has experience assisting clients in transactions involving office buildings, gas stations, apartment complexes, assisted-living facilities, industrial buildings, and other commercial projects. Additionally he has represented small businesses and nonprofits in corporate governance and transactions such as asset purchases, stock redemptions, and mergers.
