Keith P. Larsen


“Clients can generally picture and describe the end result they are after, but look for help with the road map to reach that result.”

Your business transactions – from buying to selling to partnering – as well as the disposition of goods and services – through licensing, distributing or logistics – are in good hands with Keith.  Despite the many variables associated with these types of transactions, Keith is able to help his clients sort out the pieces of the puzzle and how see they fit together.  By understanding a client’s business, coupled with his experience in both domestic and international transactions, Keith is able to help clients meet their objectives.

Case Studies / Success Story:
Before entering law school, Keith worked as a project manager with responsibility for completing large construction projects within time and budget constraints.  With this background, he appreciates the need to work with others while providing timely and cost effective results.  In one instance, Keith was asked to help a client to form a joint venture within a tight timeframe.  When the deal was presented to Keith, the parties were anxious to begin drafting and exchanging definitive agreements, but it was apparent that many of the necessary deal points had not been considered or addressed.  To expedite and organize the process, Keith outlined the basic issues and other components of the transaction to allow the parties to better understand and evaluate the scope and operation of the venture.  The approach was initially viewed as an unnecessary step in a time-sensitive situation.  However, this simple tool quickly focused the parties on the tasks at hand,  accelerating preparation of the agreements and minimizing the amount of time and energy otherwise spent on negotiations.
