For over thirty years, Brian Barnard has been providing legal advice and business counsel to senior management teams, boards of directors and in-house lawyers of public and private companies on general corporate matters, mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, reporting requirements and corporate governance.
Brian counsels buyers and sellers of public and private companies through merger and acquisition transactions, including documenting and negotiating the transaction. Clients in the securities and capital markets have the benefit of Brian's experience with assisting both issuers and underwriters in a full range of public and private equity and debt offerings.
In this era of heightened compliance with securities laws, Brian also assists his clients with a full range of corporate governance issues, including directors' duties in making business decisions, in monitoring and overseeing the affairs of the corporation, directors' duties in detecting and preventing corporate wrongdoing, protecting directors and officers against personal liability, and, especially, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.
Brian's understanding of the business and management issues facing decision makers is enhanced by the non-lawyer roles he holds within the community. Currently, he serves as the Administrative Partner of the firm's Fort Worth office. As a former member of the board of directors and executive committee of Alliance for Higher Education/North Texas Regional Center for Innovation and Commercialization (regional affiliate of the Texas Emerging Technology Fund), Brian has been actively engaged in promoting entrepreneurism in the region and with efforts to help new technology and life sciences projects succeed in North Texas.
