As the firm’s energy industry group leader, I advise public companies and private equity-backed businesses primarily in the natural resources sector. In the first year of my professional life, my firm loaned me to the owner of an energy company who had just relocated to Denver. I helped him in every area of his business, which launched my love for this industry. My experience includes partnership transaction structuring, private equity, buy- and sell-side mergers and acquisitions, and ASC 740. With more than 25 years of experience, my peers consider me an expert in oil and gas and mining taxation.
I come from a large, highly productive family, including 10 siblings and 40 nieces and nephews. This explains why being productive in a diverse and sometimes chaotic team environment comes naturally to me — as does eating quickly.
