Brent D. Mosby

Counsel

Overview

Over the past two decades, Brent Mosby has gained significant experience as the lead in-house lawyer for three enterprise software companies, a large public pension fund and one of the nation’s largest private homebuilders. Brent leverages this in-house experience and his time in private practice to provide clients with pragmatic counsel on a variety of corporate matters, including mergers and acquisitions, securities and governance matters, commercial transactions and general corporate counseling.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Brent has played a leading role in many M&A transactions, ranging from small deals to multibillion-dollar transactions between public companies. He has led tuck-in acquisitions, corporate carve-outs and cross-border transactions. He has negotiated several transition services agreements in connection with M&A deals, and he has practical experience leading post-closing integration activities.

Securities and Governance Matters

In addition to his deal work, Brent has experience preparing and filing SEC reports, advising companies on disclosure requirements, and guiding executive teams and boards of directors through strategic and corporate governance challenges. Of note, Brent has served as lead in-house attorney on an initial public offering (IPO), a follow-on offering and several private placements.

Commercial Transactions

Brent has negotiated hundreds of contracts in his career, including master services agreements, reseller agreements, software license agreements, supply agreements, vendor contracts, independent contractor agreements, professional services agreements and employment contracts. Brent also has created a suite of contract documents to streamline the customer contracting process as well as a contract playbook with fallback provisions to allow legal and contract teams to negotiate contracts more efficiently.

Corporate Counseling

Brent’s robust in-house experience makes him particularly well-suited to provide outside general counsel services to companies that do not have an in-house legal function and to companies that simply need day-to-day support from outside counsel. Brent is attuned to the budget and resource constraints faced by many legal departments and is well-positioned to provide efficient and cost-effective solutions. He also delights in assisting businesses of all sizes with day-to-day legal needs, including organizing and structuring new entities, reorganizing and recapitalizing entities, and reviewing and drafting all manners of agreements.

Personal Interests

When he is not working, Brent enjoys spending time with his young daughters (and chauffeuring them to their many activities), keeping his aging body (relatively) fit, and enjoying live music with his wife whenever and wherever they can find it.
