National law firm Polsinelli welcomes shareholder Michael Gillette
to its national Corporate and Transactional Practice. Gillette’s practice focuses on the representation of emerging and established companies in connection with a range of general corporate and transactional specific matters, including corporate formation, mergers & acquisitions, convertible debt and preferred equity issuances, joint ventures, intellectual property transfers and licensing, and other complex commercial and corporate transactions. Gillette practices across a number of industries, with a particular focus on serving clients within the health care and technology fields.
“Michael’s broad range of experience working with start-ups as well as privately and publicly held companies in Arizona and across the country is an excellent addition to our expanding practice,” said Corporate and Transactional Chair Jonathan Henderson. “We are excited to have him join our team.”
“Joining Polsinelli’s national platform and having access to the firm’s depth in over 100 service areas is an incredible opportunity and one that I am very excited about,” said Michael. “The firm’s breadth of resources, experienced professionals and offices in major financial centers across the country will enable me to service my clients and expand my practice in new ways.”
The addition of Gillette comes at a time of significant growth for the firm. More than 50 attorneys have joined Polsinelli since January of this year. Polsinelli has risen over 50 spots in the Am Law’s annual firm ranking over the past five years.
