David R. Lallouz


David R. Lallouz is a partner in Tannenbaum Helpern’s Business and Finance Group where he advises clients on complex corporate transactions. For nearly two decades, David has helped clients creatively structure, negotiate and implement mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital transactions, joint ventures, strategic investments, financings, and public offerings. In that time, David has successfully negotiated well over a hundred M&A, PE, VC and related transactions, representing clients on both the buy side and sell side, particularly in the “middle market,” and across a wide range of industries, including, industrial, manufacturing, commercial and retail business, financial services, including global financial institutions, multi-billion dollar investment funds and family offices, life sciences and health care, staffing, professional services, advertising, and talent management, to name a few. David also represents investors in PIPE (private investments in public equity) transactions and registered direct offerings.

David’s experience in the life sciences industry, in particular, is extensive, advising private equity and venture capital funds, as well as issuers in private placements, having closed literally dozens of transactions to date. He is also a member of firm’s Cannabis law practice with a focus on investment-related activities in the rapidly expanding industry.

David is also experienced in the field of distribution law, particularly with regard to food and beverage distribution, including drafting and negotiating distribution and supply agreements for distributors and manufacturers alike. Notably, David's M&A experience includes significant acquisitions and joint ventures among distributors and suppliers, including in the alcoholic beverage and soft drink industries. In addition, he regularly advises and counsels clients on corporate governance, business formation and capitalization, as well as commercial and contractual relationships. David is a co-founder of Tannenbaum Helpern’s StartMeUp program for entrepreneurs, offering a suite of legal services tailored to the needs of new business owners.

Additionally, David is a member of the firm's Cybersecurity Practice Group, advising clients on the risks and legal requirements associated with emerging technological threats, particularly in the context of corporate transactions.

Given the scope and breadth of David’s experience in corporate transactions, he has been retained to provide testimony as an expert witness to a U.S. federal court on the M&A process and best practices.

Prior to joining Tannenbaum Helpern in 2008, David was a partner in a leading international law firm based in Montreal, where his experience included Canadian, U.S. and cross-border mergers and acquisitions. David began his career in Quebec where he remains admitted to practice. Fluent both in English and French, he advises clients in both languages and has been selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers since 2011.
