David Amidon has almost 30 years of experience helping a wide array of clients, serving as both general counsel and transactional counsel to a broad and diverse group of entrepreneurs, start-up and emerging ventures, middle-market companies, private equity and venture capital funds, investment banking firms, private investors, and public companies. To his clients, Dave is a valued advisor, with unmatched responsiveness, a take-ownership, results-oriented deal approach, and a keen business sense.

Drawing on his 10-years' experience as a business executive and in-house GC, Dave serves as general counsel to a number of companies and entrepreneurs, and as counselor to the GCs and law departments of several larger corporate clients.

In addition, Dave maintains a sophisticated business transactional practice, focusing on business organization, capital formation and corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, contracting, and complex corporate transactions, including negotiation and documentation of diverse strategic alliances, joint ventures, and partnering relationships. His industry focuses include technology, traditional and online marketing and media communications (including event organizing), print and digital publishing, hospitality, restaurant and food services, manufacturing, and retail. He also represents issuers of securities and placement agents, venture capitalists, and underwriters in both private and public offerings, and counsels companies and their directors and officers on securities law compliance and corporate governance matters.

Prior to joining Burns & Levinson, Dave served as Vice President and General Counsel of Imark Communications, a Natick, Mass.-based B2B media communications company; as Vice President and General Counsel of Ullo International, an Orlando, Florida-based tradeshow, conference and event organizer; and as Vice President and General Counsel of The Biltrite Corporation, a Waltham, Mass.-based rubber and vinyl products manufacturing company. In each of these roles, he reported directly to the company's CEO and was a member of the company's leadership team, comprised of the most senior corporate executives and division presidents.

Before his management and in-house hiatus, Dave was a partner at Gadsby Hannah in Boston, with a practice concentrating on corporate and securities law, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate finance.
