Drew D. Larson is a member-attorney at BrownWinick. Drew works to be known as a lawyer that clients actually want to call — someone who has a deep curiosity and interest in their lives and business, understands complex ideas and how they fit into the bigger picture, provides support and peace of mind in times of stress and adversity, and adds real value for others who rely on his judgment. That is a big dream, but one he works to achieve every day at BrownWinick.

As a business lawyer, Drew believes that his fundamental role is to help clients capitalize on opportunities that come their way and to identify and solve the problems that they face every day. Drew primarily serves a general counsel role for clients. From businesses raising millions of dollars in financing, selling to an ESOP, or health care entities facing regulatory challenges, clients need more than just someone to read and analyze the law — they need someone who can explain how the law impacts them and their goals. Having owned a family business, Drew knows how important it is to find the right balance between formality and practicality when it comes to legal needs. While every problem is different, the approach remains the same: understand the current situation, understand the client’s goals, and chart the most effective path between them.

Drew represents clients in various aspects of their operations, including organization, financing, acquisitions, contract drafting and negotiations, succession planning, and regulatory compliance. He also works with many clients to create and maintain employee stock ownership plans (“ESOPs”)
and is active in the employee ownership community. His clients cross many industries, with a focus on health care providers, manufacturers, and technology companies.

Drew has been recognized as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers® since 2015 and as an “Up and Coming” Corporate/M&A Attorney by Chambers USA since 2020.
