He is known for his nimble approach and navigates around potential roadblocks to a deal to find practical solutions.

Brent works to design an efficient process for every transaction, from assembling the right-sized team to the due diligence approach through to structuring terms, negotiation and execution. He works with companies in many industries, and collaborates as needed with industry-focused attorneys to solve sector-specific issues.

Brent frequently works with family-owned and closely-held businesses, who often have a strong long-term vision for their company. He helps design ownership structures that provides sufficient capital for growth while allowing the family to control key parts of the business, and provide strong corporate governance oversight.
