Lewis Rice is pleased to announce that Aaron L. Pawlitz has joined the firm as a member in its St. Louis office. Aaron is a transactional attorney focusing on publicly traded and closely held businesses, mergers and acquisitions, securities, real estate, and other commercial transactions.

“Aaron is an excellent attorney serving executives and investors with business savvy and pragmatism,” said Richard B.

Aaron also frequently assists clients by analyzing their corporate finance options, including issuers in securities offerings.

In his real estate practice, Aaron helps owners, tenants, and investors realize the benefits of their real property assets. Although he routinely counsels clients regarding office, warehouse, and retail leases, Aaron also has worked on unique properties such as golf courses, baseball stadiums, and data centers.
