As a young transactional attorney, I am excited for the opportunity to continue to learn, build my practice, and bring value to the firm’s clients. There is nothing more satisfying than helping clients attain their business goals.

He assists in the firm’s representation of clients in connection with business mergers and acquisitions, the formation of corporate entities, joint ventures, intellectual property matters and other corporate transactions. He has experience in the drafting and review of transactional documents including merger and acquisition agreements, shareholder and operating agreements, healthcare-related agreements, asset and stock purchase agreements, employment agreements, escrow agreements, corporate resolutions and contracts.
Mr. Phillips advises inventors, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and companies of all sizes on the protection of their assets and competitive advantage related to trademark and copyright, and assists them in adding value to their business by obtaining, maintaining, and enforcing their intellectual property rights. His work in this area includes trademark registrations, due diligence reviews regarding intellectual property issues in corporate transactions, and the enforcement of trademark rights.
