Biography

Craig serves as a senior legal and transactional advisor within Husch Blackwell's Food & Agribusiness industry team. He provides strategic business and results-oriented advice to senior management and boards of directors of publicly held and private companies. His counsel is based on a broad yet in-depth understanding of the legal and business challenges facing companies that operate in a number of different sectors, including those in the food and agribusiness industry.

An experienced securities and mergers and acquisitions advisor, Craig has managed and continues to manage the legal work on complex corporate and commercial financings and capital-raising transactions, as well as managing many complex mergers, stock and asset acquisitions and dispositions, and corporate reorganizations. In addition, he advises senior management and boards of directors with respect to corporate governance issues.
