PilieroMazza—a business law firm serving government contractors and commercial businesses—announces the arrival of partner Abigail “Abby” Baker, who will lead the Firm’s Business & Transactions Group as Practice Group Chair. Abby brings to PilieroMazza years of extensive experience in matters involving mergers and acquisitions, private equity, corporate finance, corporate governance, restructurings, and general corporate transactions. Clients from emerging growth private companies to publicly traded companies in a variety of industries, including government contracting, will benefit from Abby’s counsel.

Abby’s creative, comprehensive, and thoughtful approach to representing clients’ business interests aligns perfectly with the priority we place on client service delivery.” Commenting on her arrival, Abby remarked: “PilieroMazza’s stellar reputation and high-performing corporate practice made the decision to join the Firm an easy one. I’m excited to start working with clients and colleagues on corporate matters and leading the Firm’s Business & Transactions Group.”

She advises clients on a wide range of matters, from short-term discrete projects, such as drafting and negotiating one-off shareholder or operating agreements, to long-term, more intricate commercial projects, such as M&A transactions.
