WEEKLY SPOTLIGHT

Attorney of the Week
David Denney

Mr. Denney’s practice encompasses both corporate transactions and business litigation. Prior to forming the firm in early 2007, David practiced with Vial, Hamilton, Koch & Knox, LLP, where he was a member of the Litigation and Corporate Transaction Practice Groups, and where he founded and chaired the Food, Beverage and Hospitality Practice Group. Mr. Denney’s corporate practice is focused on developing and growing both new and existing businesses. He counsels businesses by advising them on (among other things): corporate formation, structure, and general governance issues; growth strategies; contract drafting and negotiation; merger and acquisition activities from letter of intent through definitive agreement; development of internal policies and procedures; employment matters; and drafting and/or negotiation of franchise agreements.

Our clients trust us to guide them through their most challenging legal issues, most significant business transactions, and most critical disputes, which often cross-practices and jurisdictions.
