Bill has practiced business law for over 25 years. His clients are primarily owner-managed businesses, many of which are family-owned. Bill helps them plan and implement strategies—as simple or as sophisticated as the situation dictates—to minimize risk and operate profitably with an eye to their future.
A focus of his practice is family business transition planning. Where succession to the next generation is desired, he assists in the structuring of the business to extract value for the founder while preserving value for the successors. Where a third party sale is the goal, he assists in the positioning of the business with a view to maximizing sale value.
In addition to his considerable experience in business transitions, Bill has acted on a wide variety of complex corporate reorganizations, financings, acquisitions and divestitures.
