  • Serving as borrower’s counsel in a wide variety of financing transactions;
  • Helping clients as they acquire another business (including asset purchases, stock purchases and mergers), or sell their business; 
  • Working with clients as they expand their businesses, such as by opening new locations, or forming subsidiaries or new business divisions;
  • Assisting clients as they bring in new investors, or as current investors leave; and 
  • Helping clients who want to franchise their business, or who are interested in purchasing a franchise.

For 20 years, she has helped clients obtain liquor licenses and permits, including clients seeking “retail” liquor licenses (including hotels, restaurants, sports stadiums, performing arts arenas, bars, vessels, clubs and colleges and universities) and craft manufacturers including wineries, distilleries, cideries and breweries.

Jennifer is also a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US). Every organization, regardless of size, relies upon sensitive business information and personal information about employees and others—clients, patients, donors, data provided by business partners and contractors—for their operations. She helps her clients with respect to cybersecurity and data privacy concerns.
