More About Stan

Selling or buying a business is not something many clients do on a regular basis—and some have never done either. Clients need experienced counsel who understand the issues and can guide them through the process, identifying pitfalls where they exist and assisting them in understanding the status of the market with respect to critical issues that must be dealt with. With more than 50 years of experience in the mergers and acquisitions field, Stan is uniquely situated to guide clients through the process and deal with any challenges that arise.

Stan works with clients who are purchasers on their preparation and negotiation of documents, including operating agreements and partnership agreements with their funding sources and related equity grants and employment agreements.

In addition to an active practice in buying and selling businesses, Stan spends a substantial amount of his time working with clients, especially in the communications industry, on the legal issues surrounding their day-to-day business objectives. He assists in the negotiation of commercial contracts, such as master services agreements, agreements for communications services, fiber leases, IRUs, and distributed antenna service agreements. Stan combines his legal skills with practical wisdom to complete transactions and finalize business arrangements without prolonging negotiations.

Stan's many years of transactional experience provide him with a unique and extensive knowledge, which allows him to build creative solutions for complex issues. With a substantial number of transactions in the communications industry, Stan has vast experience in buying and selling cable television and broadband systems around the country. He has also bought and sold businesses in a variety of areas as diverse as product testing, manufacturing, and leasing of private jets, among others.

While not a tax attorney, Stan has an LLM in tax from NYU. This educational background has helped him understand and distill complex tax matters that may affect the structuring of a transaction.

Stan appreciates the collaborative atmosphere at Seyfarth. Corporate transactional work, including buying and selling of businesses, tends to be collaborative between parties, but also within the firm. He knows he can draw together attorneys or professionals familiar with diverse subject matter, and work toward a common goal of getting a transaction done in an efficient and satisfactory manner. In Stan's words: "At the end of the day, success is not defined by a winner or loser, but by the completion of a transaction with two happy parties, as opposed to one."
