Harold A. Aucoin

Harold A. Aucoin

Harold Aucoin is of counsel, who works in the Firm's Corporate & Transactions Section and practices primarily in the areas of business transactions, corporate law, contracts, taxation and general business. He originally joined the Firm is in 2007 and, after joining a Firm client in 2011, he has continued to remain of counsel to the Firm.

In addition to an attorney, Harold is a Certified Public Accountant and has a Master of Law in Taxation from Georgetown.

As an attorney for over 40 years, Harold has been involved in the design, negotiation and documentation of numerous and varied complex business transactions, including formations, acquisitions, sales, mergers, consolidations, exchanges, public offerings, and joint ventures. He has also been involved in the design, formation, and maintenance of various business entities and has negotiated and prepared an extensive array of business contracts.

Harold has also engaged in the practice of public accounting with an international accounting firm, served as general counsel and corporate secretary for a large energy related financial services company and an exchange listed public company, and acted in the roles of executive and chief financial, legal, or operating officer for several mid-sized service companies in various industries.

Harold’s varied expertise and experience allows him to provide a unique value proposition to Firm clients. In addition to being an attorney, his experience as a business executive and leader in the areas of operations and finance affords him the perspective to deliver legal services focused on creatively facilitating business objectives and achieving business results rather than merely identifying and reciting the applicable law. In addition, having served in the roles of outside legal counsel and in-house general counsel, enables Harold to serve clients either as support to an existing in-house legal function or in the role of only-as-needed “outside” general counsel.
