David Levine focuses on the representation of entrepreneurs, emerging businesses, small businesses and venture capital firms in corporate and securities transactional matters. David has a unique and broad transactional experience, having practiced in both Silicon Valley and Las Vegas. David's experience includes corporate formation, private equity and debt financings, mergers and acquisitions, general corporate maintenance and other corporate and securities transactional matters. David has represented clients in a wide variety of financing and change of control transactions. His experience includes representation of companies and investors, so he has the experience of being on "both sides" of many issues that the firm's clients are likely to encounter. In addition to being licensed in California, David is also licensed in Nevada and North Dakota, and his experience includes advising Nevada corporations and investors on Nevada corporate law issues, including issuing Nevada legal opinions in a variety of securities offerings and counseling on the advantages and disadvantages of incorporating in Nevada.

Before focusing on corporate and transactional matters, David practiced for several years in commercial litigation, including cases involving venture capital firms, insurance defense, insurance bad faith, aviation disasters, product liability and homeowner's disputes. His litigation practice also included matters involving employment and real estate counseling and litigation, and other general litigation matters. David's litigation experience adds to his perspective in advising the firm's clients in corporate and transactional matters.

Before co-founding Harrell Levine P.C. with Jeff Harrell, David led the Business and Finance department in the Las Vegas office of Snell & Wilmer L.L.P. Prior to that, David practiced for several years with Jeff in the Palo Alto office of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP.
