Vanessa Tabler is a go-to deal-maker. With experience supporting clients in a variety of sectors, such as technology, consumer products and professional services, Vanessa brings a deep appreciation for the trends shaping her clients’ industries and, by extension, their operational goals.

She advises international and domestic companies, private equity funds and their portfolio companies, as both buyers and sellers, on domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions and various corporate matters. Vanessa also helps execute venture capital and minority investment transactions, joint ventures and other strategic deals, often drawing on her business and accounting background to inform her approach. But perhaps most helpful is Vanessa’s collegial attitude. She strives to work seamlessly with clients, operating as an extension of their in-house teams.

Vanessa also has experience drafting and negotiating a broad range of commercial contracts, such as technology licensing agreements, master services agreements (and the accompanying statements of work) and supply agreements.

Vanessa is the co-leader of the firm’s Diversity Collective for the Philadelphia office. She is also on the Steering Committee of the Black Associates Group.
