We have some exciting news here at Trusted Counsel! To enhance the value of our client offerings, we’re proud to announce that we have combined with Siavage Law Group, a firm founded by distinguished industry veteran Mike Siavage in 2004.
Mike and I were founding partners at Red Hot Law Group and that firm later merged into McKenna Long & Aldridge (now Denton’s). While we have each been operating separate firms since 2004, we have collaborated on many projects during the years. Our practices are very synergistic: primarily corporate practice and intellectual property practice for small- and middle-market companies, the groups that invest in them, as well as legal departments of larger corporations.
Mike’s practice and past career experience are both impressive and highly useful for all of our Trusted Counsel clients. His background includes venture capital and corporate finance transactions; mergers and acquisitions; dispute management and settlement; intellectual property transactions including licensing, OEM, joint venture and development agreements; reseller and distribution agreements; banking transactions; formation and structuring of new companies; strategic transactions; advice to public companies on the acquisition of growth companies; and commercialization of university intellectual property. He has been involved in a multitude of corporate investment transactions, representing both companies and investors, in connection with Series A, B, C, and later venture capital investments and liquidity events.
Kara Williamson and Lindsay Cannatella will also be joining Mike at Trusted Counsel. Kara, a corporate associate, has substantive and practical general counsel experience, from operating contracts and intellectual property protection to corporate transactions. Lindsay will utilize her substantial managerial and accounting skills to serve as Trusted Counsel’s new Office Manager.
We are stronger and smarter together and will continue to deliver world-class, practical, and business-sensible advice to our clients. So, please join me in welcoming Mike, Kara and Lindsay to the Trusted Counsel team!
