Bethany focuses her transactional practice on several key corporate areas:

  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Private Equity
  • Debt Finance
  • Confidentiality Agreements 

She serves as a strategic member of many Mintz deal teams, leveraging a broad skill set in all aspects of M&A transactions. Starting at the auction stage, Bethany frequently runs the confidentiality agreement process, having negotiated over a thousand such agreements for a well-known private equity sponsor. During the negotiation process, Bethany brings experience in several different spaces — private equity, biotech, manufacturing, energy, telecommunications, strategic acquisitions, and others — to anticipate each party’s unique needs. In addition, Bethany’s experience in debt finance allows her to create synergies between the often siloed diligence, negotiation, and drafting processes that typically run in parallel in leveraged transactions.  

Bethany was a Mintz Summer Associate in 2012. During law school, Bethany served as an editor for the Boston University Law Review.
