Drew helps for-profit and non-profit businesses, municipalities and individuals navigate challenging business, transactional and health law issues by providing thoughtful and attentive legal representation. Drew collaborates with his clients to advance their goals in an efficient and timely manner. He strives to provide the highest level of service to each of his clients in all facets of his practice, whether he is managing a large and complex transaction or advising a small business on a discrete legal issue.
Drew’s commercial real estate practice focuses on affordable housing, community development and historic rehabilitation projects. He helps clients buy, sell, and renovate commercial properties using conventional bank financing, tax credits (such as new markets tax credits and low income housing tax credits), and less conventional project funding such as crowdfunding. Drew additionally has extensive experience providing real estate and business law support for the development, acquisition and sale of renewable energy projects.
Drew’s business clients rely on him for assistance with a wide range of business and transactional legal issues during all stages of an entity’s life cycle. He helps individuals interested in starting a business choose the entity type that best suits their needs and launch their ideas into an operating company, and works with established companies of all sizes to formulate and implement business strategies involving mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity financings and commercial transactions. Recognizing that the myriad of legal issues affecting today’s businesses can be confusing and at times overwhelming, Drew works closely with his clients to identify risk areas and to develop practical and cost-effective strategies for addressing them, while along the way explaining relevant legal concepts in a digestible fashion.
In his health care practice, Drew advises health care providers including hospitals, federally qualified health centers, physicians and physician practices, and residential care, assisted living and nursing facilities with respect to transactional matters and regulatory compliance. Whether he is helping a physician negotiate her first employment agreement or assisting a hospital embark on a significant new health care project with regional implications, Drew provides responsive, diligent and client-centered representation to identify and achieve his clients’ goals.
Before joining the firm in 2014, Drew worked in prestigious law firms both here in Burlington and in Boston, as a business and health care attorney, and clerked for Justice John Dooley of the Vermont Supreme Court. Drew lives in the Middlebury area with his wife and two children. He enjoys spending his free time exploring nature, learning to play the violin and implementing Section 2 of Vermont Act No. 15 of 1999.
