Sam’s role at GenCo is working day-to-day on everything from triaging time-sensitive Human Resources related decisions to diligence on multi-million dollar M&A activity. In his time at GenCo, Sam has interfaced with personalities ranging from C-suites to high-powered law firm partners. He works with GenCo clients who span the healthcare space from post-acute care providers with facilities across the country to tech startups rapidly integrating themselves into the evolving healthcare industry.
Sam structured his training and career around the idea that, in order to provide quality legal services to companies, the business and its needs are the first things to consider, with the legal analysis to follow. To this effect, Sam acquired a Master’s in Business Administration before going to law school. Sam then spent two and a half years working part-time in conjunction with his law school classes in the general counsel’s office of a publicly-traded surgical implant company, working in a cross-section of business and healthcare law on a global scale. There, he gained practical experience in corporate, commercial, complex litigation, employment, compliance, and regulatory legal matters. Also while in law school, Sam was a general editor on one of his law school’s prestigious journals, a part-time competitive youth soccer coach, and co-recipient of the “best draft” award at a national transactional competition. Sam has worked with, trained under, and competed against attorneys and law students ranked as the best in the country.
This career path has led Sam to GenCo, where he aspires to bring a positive change to the legal profession and the way it interacts with the businesses it serves. To him, this positive change is encapsulated in GenCo’s Legal Moneyball™ formula. Small and midsize businesses’ legal spend does not need to be an ever-increasing cost that corresponds to the growth of a business. The smarter approach is for legal to be a business partner where the value of the partnership is more important than an hourly rate or prestigious name.
In his personal time, Sam is involved in his wife Lauren’s historic preservation activities in the many historic areas of Tampa. He also volunteers his time to help in coaching the transactional law team he helped to start while in law school.
