Kevin K. D’Anna

“You cannot effectively solve your client’s issues in a vacuum. Knowing the law is very important, but knowing your client’s business – where they are coming from operationally, what their business goals are, etc. – is paramount. When a client engages me, I take time upfront to learn about their business and industry in general, even if it might not relate directly to the issue at hand.”


Kevin D’Anna is a Principal in the firm and a member of the firm’s Real Estate (finance) and Business & Tax practice groups. 

Kevin regularly advises financial institutions in connection with asset-based, real estate, and USDA and SBA guaranteed loan transactions.  In addition, he has become trusted outside counsel for a myriad of local and regional businesses of varying size and industry, providing legal advice on matters ranging from business formation to disposition, and everything in between.   

Kevin provides practical legal advice in connection with complex business transactions.  He prides himself on learning the businesses of his clients as part of his legal representation, which often leads to more efficient and tailored solutions to the benefit of all parties.

He has successfully closed a multitude of commercial loan and M&A transactions from both sides of the table, which enables him to advise his clients not only on what is in their best interest, but also what issues are most important to the opposing party.  This insight lends itself to more efficient negotiations and quicker resolution.
