Overview

With a background in investment banking, Connor assists clients with the financing behind acquisitions and other transactions.

Connor initially embarked on a career in investment banking in New York City. As he assisted clients with corporate lending, bond financings and other debt securities offerings, he often worked hand in hand with a team of attorneys. Connor was intrigued with legal aspects of structuring deals, and he chose to enroll in law school to expand his business and legal acumen.

Today, Connor contributes to Husch Blackwell’s Banking & Finance and Corporate teams, supporting the financing behind acquisitions, commercial and corporate lending, and a variety of other commercial, corporate and real estate transactions. During his time in New York, he gained extensive experience with the valuation side of deals, and his law school training and summer associateship at the firm prepared him for the legal aspects of transactional work.

Connor’s early investment banking career gave him a solid understanding of clients’ financial interests and market concerns, and he’s well versed in business and legal terms as he negotiates deals and structures financing packages. Checking the numbers is a first instinct for Connor, not a second thought. His banking work also contributed to his habit of learning client businesses inside and out. As a banker, Connor needed to be deeply familiar with a client’s business model, and he’s carried the same methodology into his legal practice. Knowing clients well and understanding their industries and financial goals helps Connor deliver the superior service he’s known for.
