Lori Anne Czepiel

Lori Anne counsels companies, boards, executives, shareholders and funds on business, fiduciary, governance, activism, strategy, regulatory compliance, risk management, litigation/dispute resolution, executive compensation, intellectual property, entity formation, US expansion, corporate, securities and SEC issues. She has 25 years of sophisticated experience leading M&A transactions, private equity investments, joint ventures, reorganizations, financings, initial public offerings, securities and other capital raising transactions.

A substantial portion of Lori Anne’s practice involves general business counseling. She acts as outside general counsel to clients, providing practical guidance on commercial, compliance, contract and risk management issues in close collaboration with lawyers in other firm practices (such as IP/technology, real estate, employment/labor, litigation and finance). Lori Anne’s straightforward business-oriented perspective in part derives from in house experience as acting General Counsel for a global computer products distribution company, and as a member of the board of directors of an international nonprofit business.

Lori Anne also has deep experience with cross border deals and business spanning 50 countries in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Canada.

Previously Lori Anne was a partner with an international law firm. She frequently is invited to speak and write about corporate, governance, securities and other topics (PLI, New York City Bar, American Management Association, S&P, ABA, etc.), and was selected to serve on the New York City Bar M&A committee for nine years and currently serves on the Emerging Companies committee. She has been recognized as a Super Lawyer.
