Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli is pleased to welcome new corporate and private equity attorney Aubrey Gibson, Jr. as shareholder in the firm’s Atlanta office. Gibson joins Polsinelli’s national Corporate and Transactional Practice

Gibson brings additional depth and continued momentum to both the firm’s Corporate and Transactional Practice and the growing Atlanta office. He focuses his practice on mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, venture capital investments and financings, public and private offerings of equity and debt securities, strategic partnerships and joint ventures. Gibson counsels public and private companies and private equity firms on domestic and international transactions and corporate matters. His experience also includes counseling public companies on securities law and stock exchange compliance and corporate governance.

“Aubrey’s responsive and strategic approach is highly regarded and will serve our clients’ business interests well,” said Jonathan K. Henderson, Polsinelli’s Corporate and Transactional Practice Chair. “Aubrey has earned a distinct reputation for resolving complex transactional issues, and brings a rich background that will boost our ability to propel clients’ deals and transactions toward a rapid and favorable close. We are pleased to welcome him to our team.” 

Gibson brings valuable experience serving as outside general counsel for several private companies, private equity funds and family offices with regard to the day-to-day management of each business’s legal affairs. His background includes counseling public companies on securities law and stock exchange compliance and corporate governance.

“Polsinelli’s substantial national footprint and established Corporate and Transactional Practice both impressed and attracted me to the firm,” said Gibson. “To have the ability to take advantage of Polsinelli’s widespread practice areas will allow me to fully service client needs, while maintaining the elevated commitment to client service which aligns in parallel with the firm’s values.” 

Gibson joins Polsinelli’s Atlanta office during a period of growth. Earlier this month, the firm added a group of three Atlanta-based shareholders led by prominent employment attorney Angelo Spinola. Shareholder Matthew B. Norton joined the Atlanta office and national Real Estate Practice in the fall, prior to the arrivals of John Michael Kearns (Financial Services Litigation), Wendy Godfrey (Financial Services Litigation) all in 2020. 

“Aubrey is a talented attorney who brings great value and an array of skillsets to our firm and the Atlanta office from which our clients will greatly benefit. We’re excited to welcome him to our growing team,” said Atlanta Office Managing Partner Brian McEvoy. “As our Atlanta office continues to expand strategically with the client demand, we’re pleased to have Aubrey’s international corporate experience and robust transactional knowledge to best serve our clients.” 

Gibson received an undergraduate degree at the University of South Carolina before obtaining a J.D., magna cum laude, from the University of Miami. He served as the Articles and Comments Editor for the University of Miami Business Law Review and the Articles Editor for the University of Miami Race and Social Justice Law Review.
