Why would you entrust to me the sale of your business, opining on the fairness of its merger, the value structuring of its IPO or its restructuring?

I've been
  • an investment banker for 34 years, first on Wall Street with 2 full-service firms, and then in my own firm -  helping business founders, shareholders and board directors understand the value recovery process in real time - with scores of private and public deals. 
  • a director of NYSE and Nasdaq companies.
  • a conceiver and founder of start-ups, and meeter of payrolls
  • a corporate, M&A, securities, IPO and tech lawyer at a prominent firm.
  • the 6th employee of a tech start up that revolutionized the distribution of TV to millions of subscribers.
  • a project leader in the Systems Sciences Department of a famous, government-sponsored think tank - explicitly charged with thinking out of the box on strategic military matters.

I'm not afraid to dig in and learn anything; I can both lead and take direction.  How was I trained?  M.A., Ph.D., J.D. (UCLA); B.A. (University of Wisconsin - Madison
