AttorneyBritt - Gary L. Britt, CPA, J.D. is a business lawyer with excellent legal and business judgment across a wide range of areas, with strong entrepreneurial experience in law, management, and operations. I am an excellent business lawyer with a very strong intellect. I am a strong negotiator who thinks fast on my feet. I am an excellent manager and a natural leader. I have the innate ability to resolve difficult and highly emotional conflicts through persuasion, leadership, and dogged perseverance.
I am experienced in handling a large variety of legal matters including: commercial real estate transactions from acquisition through curative title work, financing and refinancing; retail leases, from both the tenant and developer sides; corporate mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures; corporate governance; board room participation, minutes and notices; shareholder buyouts and restrictive stock agreements; creation of complex business structures; complex LLC, partnership, and shareholder agreements; employment agreements, including with covenants not to compete and the employment contracts of the top officers and shareholders of various companies; an internet application service provider (ASP) master agreement for a company selling third party health plan administrator services and software; complex health care entity business structures for Stark Law, Anti-Kickback, Self-Referral, and Fee Splitting compliance; and many other types of contracts and agreements. I am experienced in managing and directing successful litigation strategies, while minimizing costs.
I am a seasoned dual professional (lawyer and CPA) with three decades of prior experience as a trial lawyer (civil only), transactional lawyer (corporate, contracts, real estate), General Counsel, Chief Operating Officer, and Chief Financial Officer for various small to medium sized companies. I am experienced with very large companies as an auditor and tax advisor for Price Waterhouse (Houston) and Ernst & Young (Chicago). I am a team player with excellent interpersonal skills across all levels of management and population demographics.
I scored in the 90th percentile on the LSAT exam, the top 4% in the country on the CPA exam, and in 2000 (15 years out of law school) scored higher on the Georgia Bar Exam than the average Emory Law School Graduate. I graduated from DePaul University, in Chicago, magna cum laude, in June, 1974. I was licensed as a CPA in February, 1975, after having passed all parts of the CPA exam on my first attempt. I'm licensed to practice law in both Texas ('85) and Georgia ('00).
I come from modest beginnings. My parents didn't graduate from high school. I had to pull myself up by my own bootstraps with a lot of hard work, a little luck, and blessings from God. I put myself through undergraduate, graduate, and law school studies mostly at night while working full‑time during the day. I had no scholarships, grants, or school loans. Even though I could have easily qualified for admission to any of several tier 1 law schools, personal circumstances of age and family responsibilities required me to attend law school at night so I could continue to work full-time as a CPA. I worked and paid for, without loans or scholarships, all my studies and my family expenses in full as they were incurred. I graduated from Houston College of Law in 1985. The largest company for which I've worked as a lawyer (General Counsel) is a 400 Million dollar mini-conglomerate with 600 employees.
I look nothing like those young supposedly brilliant lawyers on TV. However, I do have the same interpersonal skills to connect with co-workers, clients, and groups of people on both an intellectual and emotional level, but in the rugged good looks department (the kind that say one spends 3 hours per day in the gym), I got “screwed”.
I challenge you to conceive of a highly competent attorney who brought themselves up from humble beginnings and has already proven “I can do anything, if I just get the chance”. If you would like to seriously consider an intelligent, self‑motivated, experienced, and competent lawyer and executive, then please do contact me by phone or email. You won’t be disappointed !!
