Arent Fox has expanded its Corporate & Securities practice with the addition of business law partner Stephen P Hanson in the firm’s New York office. 

For 25 years, Hanson has represented clients in the areas of private equity, mergers and acquisitions, venture capital and emerging companies, and general corporate matters.
 
Hanson has particular experience advising clients in the beverage and food, health care, manufacturing, media and publishing, specialty chemicals, and transportation and logistics industries. Hanson frequently represents financial sponsors such as private equity, mezzanine debt (including SBICs), and their respective portfolio companies, with a focus on the middle market and lower middle market.
 
“We are glad to welcome Steve to Arent Fox. He joins our nationally recognised finance and transactions team at an opportune time,” says Steven A Cohen, Corporate & Securities Practice Leader. “The first quarter of 2021 showed strong private equity activity, and Steve brings decades of experience helping clients navigating these transactions. Steve's addition strengthens our transactional support for clients in New York and across the country.”
