Allan primarily works with renewable energy clients, including wind, solar and biodiesel owners, purchasers and developers, and values the opportunity to contribute to projects that will create the world’s future energy. He oversees mergers and acquisitions, real estate transactions and other corporate matters for clients who range in size from startups to multinational corporations with multi-billion-dollar deals.
Allan chose to pursue a legal career not so much from a love of law but from a love of business: he has long been fascinated by how companies develop and grow, and he knew he wanted to be the one who cleared deal obstacles and got transactions done. That meant a career as an attorney, solving problems and closing the transactions that would facilitate clients’ corporate growth.
Prior to rejoining Husch Blackwell, Allan served as in-house counsel, as well as a development manager and later a compliance manager, for a Fortune 300 food and beverage company and then for a major online retailer. In his in-house roles, he oversaw mergers, acquisitions and other transactions but also led corporate development, strategy and established a corporate venture capital group for a Fortune 300.
The experience gave him a solid understanding of the business world inhabited by clients, as well as how outside counsel can best serve them. Allan is also personally familiar with business needs, concerns and goals, as well as the many internal stakeholders affected by a transaction. He aims to serve clients as a true business partner who provides sound, practical legal guidance as clients grow their companies.
