Reid Johnson takes a business-minded approach to the practice of law. Understanding that clients are best served by counsel who understand practical, bottom-line realities, he strives to obtain a deep understanding of each client’s business. His goal is to become a long-term, value-adding member of each client’s team.
Reid is considered a trusted counselor by his clients. From conception to exit, he efficiently leads and closes transactions in each stage of development, including formation and organization, equity and debt financings (including fund formations), mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, reorganizations, and recapitalizations. He has successfully navigated transactions ranging up to $1.2 billion in value.
While industry agnostic, Reid has significant experience in private equity, venture capital, real estate, oil and gas, healthcare, technology, advertising and marketing, finance, manufacturing and mining.
Before attending law school, Reid earned a music degree and worked as a professional classical musician. While seemingly different from his current transactional practice, what Reid learned in that time, e.g., attention to detail, persistence, creativity and organization, has translated well in helping him smoothly coordinate and execute transactions.
