Jeffrey S. Penne

“I offer practical and efficient legal advice that gets results. ”

Jeff’s clients often come to him for counsel regarding how to structure and complete business transactions, especially those in the agriculture, technology and energy sectors. Each client gets Jeff’s personal attention, and he puts his experience to work finding strategic solutions and producing timely results. It’s this combination of strategy and efficiency that sets Jeff apart.

Case Studies / Success Story:

Jeff represented a minority partner in a strategic joint venture. With two other industry players as partners, each had competing viewpoints and interests and discussions weren’t moving forward. Jeff helped facilitate face-to-face negotiations and problem-solving sessions. These meetings produced a plan that each partner could get behind, and led to the joint venture formation in a timely and cost-efficient manner.

“Never underestimate the power of in-person meetings to force issue resolution.”
