Meet Dave, business law advisor and world traveler. In both work and play, he goes the distance.

Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with him.

Dave is a dedicated counselor with an excellent eye for detail and a passion for helping clients meet their business goals. Whether you’re starting a new venture or looking to ensure the success of your current one, you can trust Dave to treat your business as if it’s his own.

Since earning his JD with highest honors from the George Washington University Law School, Dave has provided counsel to a variety of corporate clients, including numerous Fortune 500 firms. He specializes in a wide range of corporate matters, including mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity financing, and structuring effective executive compensation plans, among many others.

But that’s not all. Dave is also very experienced in:

  • M&A transactions and employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) transactions
  • Assisting in the drafting and negotiation of employment agreements, equity incentive plans, equity award agreements, and non-compete agreements
  • Intellectual property licensing
  • Healthcare regulations
  • Capital markets

In his former life, Dave was:

  • A business associate at Bachelder & Dowling, a boutique law firm in Portland, Maine
  • Practicing in Simpson Thacher & Bartlett’s New York office, with a focus on executive compensation, mergers and acquisitions, and capital markets

When Dave isn’t working, he is…

Covering some serious ground, both as a long distance runner and avid traveler. He lives in South Portland where he sea kayaks in the summer and cross-country skis in the winter.
