David Garcia

Partner

5441 Kietzke Lane, Suite 200, Reno, NV 89511

David Garcia has extensive experience counseling clients in debt and equity financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and other corporate matters.

He works with companies ranging from small start-up and privately held businesses to publicly-traded corporations on structural, governance, capitalization, and contract matters, as well as an array of venture capital, angel and private equity investors in various types of investments, acquisitions and dispositions. 

David’s calm, pragmatic approach allows him to provide clients with practical advice and conclude transactions quickly and efficiently. His broad experience allows him to give advice and negotiate deals from a perspective of likely outcomes rather than theoretical risk, never losing focus on putting his clients in a position to succeed.

David is also the Practice Group Leader of the firm’s Corporate practice group.

Prior to Holland & Hart, David practiced with Wilson Sonsini and Venture Law Group in Silicon Valley, and with Hale Lane in Reno.
