He regularly advises clients about commercial transactions and disputes, venture capital financings, business purchases and sales, and owner disagreements.
States Crozet’s Jeff Schwoebel, CEO of REI Drilling, Inc., “The quality I most appreciate about Dave is that he really is part of our management team, understands our business and provides timely and pragmatic advice.”
Mr. Dallas currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Thomas Jefferson Partnership for Economic Development and the Board of Trustees of the Shenandoah National Park Trust. He is a past President and Chairman of the Board of the Boys and Girls Club of Central Virginia.
