Biography

David McHugh doesn’t simply represent his clients – he becomes part of their executive team. Drawing on his experience counseling a wide range of companies, from startups to Fortune 500 businesses, David crafts legal strategy with a singular goal: achieving his clients’ business objectives. Regularly serving as outside general counsel to public and private companies both inside and outside of the United States, he collaborates with the firm’s other practice groups to find practical, forward-thinking solutions. Many of his former colleagues have become clients, relying on him for his day-to-day business and legal insight.

David has extensive experience advising public and private companies in connection with mergers and acquisitions and general corporate matters, including organizational and compliance issues. He combines deep legal knowledge with an entrepreneurial spirit to provide a fresh perspective on his clients’ challenges and helps develop comprehensive, cost-effective solutions. He then works with clients to adjust these solutions as they are implemented, ensuring successful outcomes that support long-term business strategies.

David’s clients are from diverse fields – such as manufacturing, technology, consumer, and industrial products – and they appreciate his flexible, responsive counsel. He works with every level of management, and is adept at handling corporate governance, compliance, and securities-related issues for businesses of all sizes. Clients trust him as a discreet, thoughtful adviser, and return to him for counsel regularly.

David is often called upon by clients to lead their international transactions. Clients rely on David’s judgment that he has developed from his first-hand experience working on an individual basis with a wide network of counsel throughout the world and navigating complex legal issues on cross-border transactions.

In addition to his work with public companies, David has represented a variety of others in their business dealings. He has advised issuers and investment banks in equity and debt offerings; has been bond counsel for state and local political subdivisions; and he works with private equity sponsors and investors in their acquisition, divestiture, and financing activities.
