John Crowe has more than 20 years of experience as a lawyer. His clients get the benefit of the rare combination of a best-in-class transactional attorney who has also litigated in state and federal courtrooms at the trial and appellate levels. Few other lawyers bring such an array of experience from the closing room, courtroom, and boardroom.

John functions as the general counsel to many of his clients responding to all of their legal needs when they arise. He regularly advises clients in structuring and negotiating asset and stock transactions for strategic and financial parties; transactions in bankruptcy courts; partnership and investor formations; real estate acquisitions, financing and leasing; business litigation; joint ventures; loan transactions; private placements; franchise relationships; entity formations; supply distribution, marketing and co-development agreements; and employment, consulting and compensation agreements and settlements for executives and salespersons.

John has been recognized by his peers and asked to participate as a presenter at seminars focusing on corporate and business law matters, including issues facing owners who are selling their companies, the mergers and acquisitions process, and specialty financings. He is licensed to practice law in New York and Michigan. While in law school, John was the overall winner of the 1996 Albert R. Mugel National Tax Moot Court Competition at which he was also awarded first place for best written legal brief. He also served as a member and as the Business Editor of the Buffalo Law Review.
