Biography

Len Musgrove has practiced law since 1986. He formed Musgrove Law Firm, P.C. in July of 2012 to better service the legal needs of his clients. Prior to that date, Len was a partner with Bellinger & DeWolf, L.L.P. since 1997, serving as managing partner of that firm during the latter portion of his tenure. In addition to being an attorney with over 26 years of experience, Len is a certified public accountant. Len currently represents many privately held national and regional emerging and growth companies, including multiple companies included and recognized among the prestigious Dallas 100, Celebration of Enterprise and Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.

Len has represented numerous publicly-traded and privately-held corporations, limited partnerships, general partnerships, limited liability companies and other entities, including real estate developers, high-tech businesses, manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors, oil and gas operators and mineral interest owners, commercial lenders, agricultural co-ops, professional entities, non-profit organizations and healthcare providers. He has extensive expertise in a variety of transactional areas, including: complex mergers and acquisitions of publicly-traded and privately-held entities; structuring business entities; federal and state business taxation planning; income, complex estate and gift tax planning; challenges of federal and state income, sales and franchise tax assessments; private placement offerings for energy, real estate, retail and manufacturing-based clients; tax-free reorganizations of privately-held entities; acquisitions and sales of oil and gas producing properties and gathering systems; commercial real estate properties and multi-family residential properties; and stock and asset purchases and sales of going concerns by privately-held and publicly-held entities, both from the buyer and seller's perspective.

In the early 1980s, Len worked for two years as a CPA as an oil and gas audit specialist in the Dallas office of Ernst & Whinney, now Ernst & Young, L.L.P. Following law school, he moved to Midland, Texas, where he worked as an oil and gas securities lawyer with Lynch, Chappell, Allday and Alsup for three years. In 1989, Len returned to Dallas and joined Arter, Hadden & Witts (later Arter & Hadden), where he was focused on business and tax transactions such as banking and tax planning. It is there that he met the founders of Bellinger & DeWolf L.L.P., which led to his past affiliation with that firm.
