ABOUT

John has been providing business, legal, regulatory, and strategic advice to clients for over twenty years. He spent the first 17 years of his career on Wall St. working on complex funds, investment management, M&A transactions, and public and private offerings. His clients span a variety of industries, including asset management (mutual funds, closed-end funds, ETFs, hedge funds, private equity, and US and offshore feeder funds), financial services (investment advisers and broker-dealers), fintech, real estate, renewable energy, insurance, healthcare, consumer products, and e-commerce.

Outside of work, John enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and two sons, community service, traveling, reading, and running. John volunteers as a child advocate for abused children and has visited over 25 countries, led over a dozen backpacking trips across the U.S., and has run over ten marathons. Obviously, sitting is not in John’s vocabulary.
