A deal attorney with senior-level in-house experience at public companies, Caleb has developed “peripheral deal vision”—he anticipates issues that may not be in plain sight.

Caleb leads and executes complex M&A and corporate transactions from inception through post-closing integration—when, as he knows firsthand, the “real” work for clients begins. While his significant experience across the full range of corporate transactional matters is foundational to moving deals forward, his in-house background enables him to identify and prioritize matters that ultimately could interrupt clients’ day-to-day business operations once deals close.

Caleb joined Husch Blackwell after dedicating more than a decade to helping clients strategically build and grow their businesses, including serving as counsel on multibillion-dollar transactions. He represents manufacturing and technology clients, and other buyers and sellers of public and private companies across a range of industries, sizes, and geographies.

Beyond M&A and corporate transactional work, Caleb advises clients on public capital market issues, including SEC reporting obligations and disclosure matters, general corporate communications, and debt and equity financings, as well as provides strategic counsel on a variety of commercial and business matters, including commercial transactions, regulatory compliance, and real estate transactions.

Clients value Caleb’s versatility, pragmatism, and quarterbacking skills. His responsiveness, empathy, proclivity for digging deep to thoroughly understand the mechanics of an issue, and ability to quickly distill and communicate complex ideas in a digestible manner to cross-functional client teams form a winning approach that successfully and cost-effectively moves deals across the finish line.
