Drew Whiting has joined Michael Best’s Corporate Practice Group as senior counsel in Chicago. Whiting was previously a member of Stahl Cowen Crowley Addis LLC.

in a release, the firm said Whiting will focus his practice advising growth stage companies, venture capital firms, angel investors, investment syndicates, private equity funds and closely-held private and family businesses in matters related to financing, employment, advisory and licensing transactions. He also counsels on the negotiation of investment deal terms, vendor and customer agreements, joint venture agreements, business succession planning, management buyouts, asset sales, business unit divestitures and acquisitions.

“Additions like Drew are instrumental in continuing to service the Chicago business community,” said Kerryann Haase Minton, managing partner of Michael Best’s Chicago Office. “We are fortunate that Drew brings him a wealth of subject matter knowledge and experience in the venture capital and private equity sectors to the firm as we continue to manage bigger and significantly more complex investment deals in the near future.”
