She has sophisticated experience in M&A transactions, venture capital and private equity investments, joint ventures, reorganizations, IPOs and
other securities and capital raising transactions and has led hundreds of transactions valued at over $120 billion in the aggregate. Lori Anne handles matters from under $1 million to large middle market transactions for early-stage, private and public companies, investors and financial advisors in the technology, financial services/banking, asset management, healthcare, pharmaceutical/medical device and life science, business services, consumer/retail, manufacturing, insurance, media/entertainment, transportation, energy, and real estate industries.
Lori Anne’s practice also involves general business counseling. She acts as outside general counsel to clients, providing practical guidance and solutions on commercial, contract, strategy, compliance, and risk management issues in close collaboration with lawyers from other firm practices (including healthcare, pharmaceutical, technology, banking, IP, tax, and litigation). Her straightforward business-oriented perspective in part derives from prior in-house experience, including as acting General Counsel for a Nasdaq-listed global computer products distributor, and as a member of the boards of directors of international nonprofit businesses.
