Larry Schoenbrun represents business owners and executives in corporate divorces and separations. He is a sought after advisor who understands the business, technical, legal and economic nuances, as well as the remedies, of these often complex and challenging matters. Larry is also an experienced mergers and acquisitions lawyer who works with clients on the painful aftermath of their M&A transactions when they don’t turn out as planned. From fraud and financial difficulties, environmental and employment issues, to domestic and international tax problems, Larry represents buyers and sellers around the U.S. and helps them maximize their investment value and minimize the lingering concerns.
For years Larry has worked with private equity companies, their portfolio companies and venture capital investors. He is frequently hired to represent special committees, especially in conflict situations between principal and minority shareholders, when there is alleged wrongdoing on corporate governance matters or in dealing with affiliate transactions.

He analyzes and advises on director indemnification, as well as director and officer coverage policies, and collaborates with Gardere partners in analyzing insurance coverage in order to provide the most comprehensive protection and advice.
Larry’s greatest source of new clients is referrals from existing ones. He has the confidence of executives who have benefited from his reasonable, level-headed and pragmatic approach to problem-solving.

He is adept at helping warring factions achieve calm resolution, and accepting an approach that is doable and practical.
You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
