Samuel is a legal and financial trailblazer. His clients are drawn to his deep understanding of issues arising at the intersection of corporate law, corporate finance, and business operations. He often serves as the right-hand consigliere for CEOs, CFOs, company founders, investors and other professionals.
Samuel is a partner of the firm and oversees our transactional practice group. While he greatly respects the more adversarial side of the legal professional – litigation and dispute resolution – he spends the bulk of his time helping his clients close transactions that produce significant value and money to their businesses.
Since embarking on his legal career in 2008, he has handled $1B+ in transactions spanning across industries and geographic borders, including but not limited to venture funding, mergers & acquisitions, cross-border transactions, and raising capital for businesses large and small. He has also had the pleasure of advising financial institutions – from RIAs to offshore hedge funds – on compliance, fundraising and other business issues. More recently, he oversees a specialized loan book for a regional bank with assets of more than $80B.
In addition to maintaining his legal practice, he has also started various entrepreneurial ventures, including serving as a managing partner in an investment advisory business in Europe as well as serving as CEO & CFO of a consumer products company for several years.
Samuel’s clients know him as a candid purveyor of advice with a sharp, detail-oriented mind.
