Tom McLain's practice as an attorney in private practice was focused on general corporate transactional work, with an emphasis on contract negotiation and preparation, mergers and acquisitions, and the formation and governance of corporations and limited liability companies. Tom's experience includes representing startup companies and other companies in connection with angel, private equity and venture capital investments. In connection with his active mergers and acquisitions practice, Tom regularly counsels clients regarding the potential review of such transactions by the antitrust enforcement authorities pursuant to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR). Tom also has experience in representing international companies and foreign individuals (primarily from Europe) in connection with their business investments and operations in the U.S. Until 1997, Tom’s practice included representation of his clients in litigation matters.
