We are delighted she is joining the firm as we continue to deliver exceptional client service.”
Amanda advises clients on public and private company mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, joint ventures, carve-outs, and other significant transactions, including private equity and venture capital transactions. She also advises clients on activist defense and corporate governance matters.
