About Me

Dan Findley regularly provides general business counsel to closely held and family-owned businesses during all phases of the life cycle of a business – new business start-up, growth & expansion, maturity and exit/succession planning. Typical matters include contracts & licenses, leases, intellectual property protection, corporate governance and taxation issues.

Dan has helped clients close hundreds of business and real estate acquisitions and sales.   Transactions include asset or stock purchases/sales of closely held and family-owned corporations, ranging from retail businesses, apartment complexes, agricultural land, industrial and manufacturing facilities, medical, veterinary and other professional practices and insurance agencies to specialized assets such as trademarks and patents, hotels, farms and ranches, oil and gas wells, race and show horses.

Dan also enjoys assisting clients with estate, trust and tax matters, whether through advance planning or after the passing of a loved one. This often includes special planning for international clients.
