Brian Harr's practice includes the representation of both public and private companies in the sale and purchase of companies.
He has extensive experience in the structuring of transactions to maximize the value of the transaction for his clients. During the negotiations of a transaction, Brian works closely with his clients to identify potential issues, explain the consequences of such issues, and try to find an acceptable resolution to such issues. Once a transaction closes, he continues to work with his clients to see that all post closing covenants are satisfied; and, if there are any other post closing issues, they are resolved in a satisfactory manner.
