Denver (PRWEB) May 13, 2015
Thomas B. Romer joined international law firm Greenberg Traurig’s Denver office as shareholder in its Corporate & Securities Practice. Romer will focus his practice on mergers and acquisitions, securities, finance, and business formation.
Romer has developed a successful domestic and cross-border transactional practice by using legal project management strategies to more effectively and efficiently manage complex transactions for his clients. Romer assisted Mexico Retail Properties and MRP Group, LP in completing the largest ever real estate transaction in Mexico's history consisting of the sale of 49 commercial properties and the sale of MRP Group's property management platform for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $2 billion. As a founding member of an American Bar Association Task Force charged with developing legal project management tools for deal lawyers, Romer has helped to expand the use of legal project management strategies by other transactional lawyers.
"The addition of Tom to our growing Corporate & Securities practice further bolsters our transactional capabilities," said David G. Palmer, managing shareholder of the Denver office. "His extensive experience representing public and private companies in connection with M&A transactions and securities issues, coupled with delivering value during deal-flow will be a significant asset to our clients not only in Colorado, but nationally and internationally as well."
Beyond his M&A practice, Romer advises company boards in connection with their fiduciary duties and corporate governance under Colorado and Delaware law in connection with mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, controlled corporate transactions, and other complex transactions. He also assists public companies prepare federal and state securities filings, advises companies on raising capital through private placements, and counsels corporate and individual clients on securities law violations.
Romer received his J.D. from University of Colorado Law School and earned a B.A. from Tufts University.
