Biography

Marita brings insight, clarity, and "unbelievable attention to detail" (Chambers) to her transactional work for some of the world's best-known brands. She counsels public and growth-stage technology and consumer products clients on a broad spectrum of issues, with a focus on mergers and acquisitions as well as minority and control investments. Her deals—whether buy side or sell side—frequently involve highly complex capital structures, intricate management incentives, talent retention issues, and protection of intellectual property. Marita's ability to identify the impact of these issues while anticipating short- and long-term complications has led to a steady stream of significant transactions. Clients value her long-term approach to relationships, describing her as a "company-focused" lawyer who sees each transaction within a larger strategic context.

For public companies, Marita advises in the areas of corporate governance and reporting obligations. Known for her astute interpretation of SEC rules and regulations, she provides practical disclosure advice grounded in a solid understanding of her clients' business objectives. She advises on both routine public reporting matters and complex restatements and stock exchange rule compliance issues.
