Guiding clients through mergers and acquisitions from start to finish

Ethan has significant experience in managing entire client transactions. In the past year, Ethan has taken the leading role in several key mergers and acquisitions. He regards his practice as one of problem-solving for the client — whatever the issue. He starts by learning a client's goals and discussing how to achieve them. Then he drafts and negotiates the necessary contracts to accomplish these goals. These contracts thus encapsulate the problem and his solutions to them.

In 2015, Ethan successfully completed the Fullbridge Program. While in law school, he served on the editorial board of the Virginia Journal of Law and Politics.
