Stephen M. Sager's Profile Image

Stephen M. Sager

My practice concentrates on general corporate matters, mergers and acquisitions, business succession planning and commercial finance. I have particular experience in structuring complex mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, leveraged leases and other tax-driven transactions, and have over 23 years’ experience in these areas. I have routinely represented national banks, airlines and other Fortune 500 hundred companies, and have negotiated deals with an aggregate transaction value in excess of two billion dollars.

I also believe that no job is too large or too small though, and regularly counsel small to medium sized businesses concerning their daily operations in all areas of the law. I particularly enjoy counseling start-up companies and their day to day corporate counsel, preparing family companies for sale, and generational transitions of businesses.

As the son of a mother and father who started and grew a small business from nothing, I have first hand knowledge of the hard work, determination and sacrifice it takes from everyone to make a family business work, and find great satisfaction is doing my part to help others strive for the same.
