Louann Bronstein is a partner in the Savannah office, where she leads the corporate/tax group. For more than two decades as a corporate lawyer, Louann has counseled clients—from entrepreneurs and startups to large, privately held companies across multiple industries—through every phase of growth.
Louann’s practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions. For the benefit of her clients and her practice group, Louann stays on top of trends and activity in mergers and acquisitions and is well-versed in where the market is on deal terms, how transactions should play out, where the risks are, and how to navigate a transaction to closing. As no transaction can be done alone, Louann enjoys bringing together a team of Firm resources to meet client goals. This is a rewarding experience for her, especially at HunterMaclean, where her colleagues have the subject matter breadth to handle all aspects of a transaction and are ready to jump in at a moment’s notice.
Due to the breadth of her experience, Louann frequently serves in the capacity of outside general counsel to her clients and provides general legal and business advice and documentation for domestic, foreign-owned, and multinational businesses. Louann routinely assists CEOs, CFOs, other senior executives, board members, and owners with general corporate advisory matters and transactional contract drafting and negotiation, including business formation, capital and corporate structure, funding, equity and stockholder agreements, operating agreements, establishing and managing operations in the United States, and exit strategies. She enjoys working closely with clients on issues central to the success of their business enterprises.
Louann also assists clients with growth and achieving success through advice in relation to private securities offerings and venture capital and private equity financings.
Louann’s mergers and acquisitions and private funding practice includes over 100 deals, representing the full spectrum of business transactions and deal structures, including mergers and acquisitions; joint ventures; partnerships; strategic alliances; consolidations; internal reorganizations; other sophisticated business combinations, dispositions, and asset divestitures; and private funding through Series D offerings.
Before joining HunterMaclean, Louann practiced in Atlanta, including over fourteen years with Seyfarth Shaw LLP, an AMLAW 100 firm. Louann’s practice with Seyfarth Shaw included the development of M&A process maps and specialized project management training, including obtaining a yellow belt in SeyfarthLean, a unique and contemporary approach, based on Lean Six Sigma, to providing and managing legal services.
