Profile

For more than four decades, Geoffrey has helped clients with critical business, governance and transactional matters.

He has successfully completed scores of mergers, acquisitions, buy-outs and divestitures; led more than three dozen public offerings and numerous private placements, financing transactions, restructurings and workouts; structured and restructured the governing documents of many corporations, joint ventures, partnerships and limited liability companies; and advised on complex initiatives including hostile takeovers, tender offers, proxy contests, spin-offs, project financings and “going private” initiatives.

An important part of Geoffrey's practice consists of counseling Boards and Committees of non-profit entities about corporate governance mechanisms and best practices, fiduciary duty obligations and issues, disclosure questions and legal compliance generally. He also represents and advises Boards and Committees facing governance disputes, considering transactions that involve apparent or potential conflicts of interest, or dealing with governmental or internal investigations or similar challenges.
