Joseph R. DeHondt
Charting a clear course, anticipating and addressing roadblocks before they arise, and driving deals to timely and efficient conclusions are the hallmarks of Joe DeHondt's transactions practice.
Joe delivers clear, actionable advice and a collegial yet vigilant approach that facilitates the consummation of complex mergers and acquisitions, corporate financing, and other transactions.
Joe's sound counsel is a product not only of his extensive and varied experience but of his ability to truly listen to his clients and develop a comprehensive understanding of their concerns, risk tolerance, and objectives. Though he represents clients across a broad spectrum of industries, he has earned a reputation for his acumen with technology-related transactions and his representation of clients in the automotive, autonomous vehicle, and advanced mobility sectors.
“ Too many lawyers, willingly or otherwise, impede transactions with distractions or other matters that don't really matter at all. I focus on the issues at the heart of a deal to clear a path that all parties can take to get it closed. ”
