PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Ms. Mezek assists businesses with the initial formation phase, financing needs, various capital raise rounds, and ultimately with any mergers, acquisitions and other business reorganizations. Ms. Mezek also works with foreign companies that are looking to expand their operations to the U.S. Utilizing a broad network of professionals in the accounting, banking and immigration fields, she can help ensure a smooth transition to an otherwise potentially daunting market.

Ms. Mezek has worked with companies ranging from startups to multi-million dollar revenue companies in various industries including industrial product manufacturers (e.g. gasket sheets and LED light bulbs), software companies, consumer goods manufacturers (e.g. hands-free dog leashes and organic feminine hygiene products), as well as companies in the service industry (e.g. restaurants, yoga studios, and insurance providers).

Ms. Mezek has experience representing both buyers and sellers, whether companies or individuals, entering into relatively small and simple stock or asset purchase deals to complex cross-border reverse mergers. In conjunction with such transactions, we bring to the table multi-faceted experience in the mergers and acquisition field. She handles the core aspects of the merger or acquisition beginning with the letter of intent through post-close matters, and ensure that any and all tax, financial, employment and intellectual property issues that may accompany the transaction are concurrently addressed and properly made an integral part of the corporate deal at hand.

In addition to being an attorney, Ms. Mezek also holds a degree in Finance and is thus able to understand and appreciate the financial and business nuances of any transaction and ensures that these concerns are successfully intertwined with the legal documentation.

Prior to starting her own firm, Ms. Mezek worked as in-house counsel for Goodyear Tire Company in Slovenia where her legal team was responsible for the corporate needs of 15 Central and South Eastern European countries. In addition, she has worked for law firms in Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay Area. With this broad range of experience, Ms. Mezek understands what her clients’ needs are and prides herself on ensuring that they receive the support and results that they expect.
