Summary

Sheila focuses her practice on assisting entrepreneurs as they launch their business and encounter change as they grow. She works closely with growing companies, established businesses, and investors to develop solutions to the broad range of challenges they encounter in running their businesses. She works with clients on managing founder relationships and ownership issues, corporate governance for new and established companies, protecting intellectual property, financing issues, including state and federal securities laws, and preparing business owners to sell their companies. Sheila works with many companies as they prepare to sell their business or acquire new ones by advising them through the buy and sell process, including the often complex allocation of risk in mergers and acquisitions.

Sheila combines her legal experience with a practical understanding of the needs of her clients. She has developed a culture at Seck & Associates where attorneys develop an in-depth understanding of the firm’s clients so that practical solutions can be applied to meet client’s goals and objectives. The firm doesn’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach to providing legal or consulting services. Sheila also connects clients with many resources in the business community, including investment bankers, capital resources, bankers, and HR resources.

Professional Experience
Managing Director
Seck Advisor Group
- Current
With over 20 years of experience working with buyer and sellers and advising them on deal structure and strategy we noticed a need for a more customized and personal approach for small to middle-market companies. And that is why we formed Seck Advisor Group. Seck Advisor Group understands that many entrepreneurs are not familiar with and may find intimidating the process of buying, selling, or implementing strategic plans within one’s company. We therefore take a more personalized approach, by first understanding the “why” behind our clients’ companies and the “what” of the day-to-day operations, before we get to the “how” of the actual strategic evaluation, purchase or sales transaction. Once we understand their goals, we educate them through the process, position the company in the best light to align with their goals, create strategic plans customized to their objectives, and capitalize on our negotiating skills to close deals.
