About Charles

Charles is a client-focused corporate and transactional attorney.  He helps his clients to find solutions by drawing on his investment banking and capital markets experience to present legal issues in terms of business decisions.  Having worked in financial publishing, investment banking, credit trading and analysis, and consulting, Charles’s career prior to practicing law has always been focused on business and finance.  As a key member of multiple deal teams that closed a wide range of financings, he has worked through many of the same challenges his clients face.  As an attorney, he uses this depth of experience, as well as the lessons he learned building his own business, to provide practical advice to his clients to enable them find their best path forward.

Charles routinely advises clients on mergers and acquisitions, capital raises, asset sales, reorganizations, partner buy outs or exits, private securities offerings, and other corporate actions.  He assists with business formation and transformation, drafting contracts, regulatory compliance, and corporate compliance.

Charles lives in Baltimore County, Maryland, with his wife, two kids, plus a lively dog.  He is an active member of various community groups and enjoys supporting his family in their various endeavors.  After many years of living and working abroad, he speaks conversational Spanish, some French and a little Russian. He is always on the lookout for good restaurants, a nice glass of wine, and he enjoys exploring all of the great things that Maryland has to offer.
