Ray concentrates his practice in mergers and acquisitions, contract negotiation, drafting and review, owner strategic planning through buy-sell agreements, business fractures, and secured lending.
Pertaining to mergers and acquisitions, Ray has worked with numerous closely-held companies on various aspects of acquisition and sale transactions including, with respect to purchase and sale agreements, restrictive covenant agreements, and consulting and employment agreements. In the area of business fractures, Ray not only strives to deliver well-crafted documents, but also seeks to advise clients on the best course of action in the midst of challenging circumstances.
In every matter, Ray’s goal is to work closely with other trusted client advisors, adopting a team approach so that the client benefits from the full breadth of an advisor’s experience and area of focus. He strives to provide responsive and well-balanced advice and ensure there are strong lines of communication among the parties and professionals throughout the process.
Prior to joining MPS over 20 years ago, Ray was an associate at national law firms based in Chicago, Illinois.
