Alan is consistently recognized as a leading corporate and M&A lawyer by publications such as Chambers USA, which refers to him as “a great business lawyer” who “knows how to get through the issues” and highlights that his clients appreciate his negotiation skills and common-sense approach. Other publications that have recognized Alan include The Best Lawyers in America.
Alan developed his practical business experience and judgment while working as a young adult for his family’s food service distribution business, and later honed it serving for over 30 years on the Company’s Board.
