David T. Shafer

Dave counsels clients on a broad range of business and finance matters, such as mergers and acquisitions, purchase and sale of private businesses, commercial financing, private offerings of debt and equity securities, venture capital and private equity transactions, and general governance issues. He advises clients on all phases of their business life cycle, from formation and start-up through growth, operation, and sustainment to sale of the company—often counseling clients on matters related to customer and vendor contracts, securities and tax compliance, and employee incentive offerings.
