I was an employee and partner of McGuireWoods LLP, a large national and international law firm, from 1969 to 2014. I was the Managing Partner of the firm for almost 13 years. I worked in Brussels, Belgium for five years and was a member of the Bars of Brussels and England and Wales.
My legal practice focused on business law, finance, middle market mergers and acquisitions and public-private partnerships. I have experience with a number different types of financing, including private placements, leases, bank loans and the public sale of securities.
From 1964 to 1967 I was an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps serving tours in Vietnam and aboard ship in the Mediterranean.
I have been a member of the board of a number of civic and charitable organizations.
