Rebecca assists clients with corporate deals and transactions, with a particular focus on highly regulated and emerging industries.

Rebecca is a collaborative problem solver who excels at guiding individuals through complex systems and projects. She quickly realized that this made her an ideal fit for a corporate and transactional practice, where she would work closely with client teams to structure mergers and acquisitions that would meet their business needs.

While Rebecca began her legal career working primarily with private equity firms across a variety of industries, she focuses her current practice on food systems, especially the emerging cannabis space. Fascinated by the intersection of law and policy, Rebecca earned her undergraduate degree in public policy and is enthusiastic about supporting clients in such heavily regulated industries. An externship at the Environmental Protection Agency gave her an inside view on how broadly policies and rules can affect companies, and she’s passionate about helping clients work within legal requirements to grow their businesses. Rebecca particularly enjoys assisting clients in emerging and highly regulated industries as they navigate ever-changing and increasingly complex regulations.

With a strong background in mergers, acquisitions, and private equity fund formation, Rebecca handles a variety of corporate transactions for clients in the financial services and food systems industries and beyond. Known for her collaborative skills and her approachability, Rebecca also provides support for general corporate legal needs, and she advises clients on regulatory compliance.
