Review William Gould

About Me

 I was named the “2012 Los Angeles Mergers and Acquisitions Law Lawyer of the Year” by The Best Lawyers in America. I regularly advise boards of directors of public companies, and, along with other members of my firm, authored a book titled Advising and Defending Corporate Directors and Officers. I have a great deal of experience in mergers and acquisitions involving private and public companies.
