Alan J. Wolf


I like what I do. Every phone call, email and letter is a challenge to be met. Every relationship is an opportunity to deliver.

My Background

I’ve worked as a transactional attorney for over forty years. Throughout those four decades, I have represented clients from diverse industries - start ups to fully matured businesses, profit and not-for-profits, and public and private companies. Their legal needs, and my experience, span a wide range of industries such as financial services, real estate, health care, food service and manufacturing. On their behalf, I’ve handled both ordinary and complex business matters, including:

  • Midsize M&A
  • Asset and stock transfers
  • Private equity transactions
  • Business succession planning
  • Financing
  • Corporate governance
  • Dispute resolution
  • Asset protection
  • Estate planning for succession, asset protection and special needs
  • Family constitutions

For many years, I’ve also served as the pro bono general counsel for various 501(c)(3) organizations.

When my clients’ businesses and livelihoods are at stake, they need and deserve more than knowledge of the law alone. My extensive experience as a lawyer and as the president of our firm, allows me to envision the entire chessboard, accounting for both today and tomorrow. During difficult negotiations and transactions, I depend on my insight to recognize and utilize the appropriate leverage, and my tenacity to advocate for my clients’ best interests. Beyond that, working collaboratively with my partners and associates, as well as my clients’ accountants and other advisors is a critical piece of my practice.
