Joshua M Watkins

Businesses & Corporate Law; Civil Litigation; Wills, Trusts & Estate Planning

As practicing attorney, and executive with a family media company, Josh understands the challenges of growing a business.

His legal practice has primarily focused on working with private companies as general counsel, typically representing both the owner's family and the company. As general counsel his duties typically include an array of tasks such as: in-house day-to-day activities, advising the company’s board of directors on their oversight responsibilities, planning and preparing complex corporate transactions, commercial litigation, tax and succession planning, oversight of the corporation’s compliance with federal and state regulations, legal budget management, and specialized outsourcing of legal matters to other counsel when appropriate.

When counsel to emerging start-up companies, Josh often brings critical expertise in the many types of capital formation activities, including entity and structure choices, fundraising processes, and securities compliance.
