Mauro Viskovic is Counsel to the firm’s Corporate Law practice group, where he focuses on providing high quality and cost-effective solutions to clients’ legal matters.
Since commencing his legal career in 2000, Mauro has been practicing law primarily in the areas of corporate and securities law. He represents entrepreneurs through all stages of their ventures’ development, including advice on structure, initial company formation and organization, private financings, commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions and liquidity events. In addition, Mauro represents investors in all aspects of corporate finance transactions.
Mauro’s life as an attorney began with Morrison Cohen LLP, where he largely represented venture capital and private equity firms in their investment activities. After accumulating many years of experience at handling a wide variety of transactional matters, Mauro became one of the founding partners of Kranjac Manuali & Viskovic LLP. There, he continued to handle corporate and securities matters, including securities offerings, commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate finance. In 2013, Mauro started his corporate boutique practice, Viskovic LLC, where he continued to represent clients on complex corporate and securities matters, often on transactions where counterparties are represented by AmLaw100 firms or by in-house counsel at major global banks, investment firms and other financial services firms.
Mauro’s practice focuses also on the representation of private investment fund advisers and portfolio managers. His services include: (1) Facilitating the transition of moving to a new advisory firm or starting a new firm, while addressing non-compete and other restrictive covenants; (2) Review and negotiation of seed investment agreements; (3) Review and negotiation of vendor and counterparty agreements, including prime broker and ISDA agreements, electronic trading agreements, fund administration agreements and market data licenses; and (4) Preparation, review and negotiation of employment agreements and restrictive covenant agreements.
Mauro graduated from Fordham University School of Law and earned his BBA degree in Accounting from Baruch College. Having passed all 4 parts of the CPA exam and having earned years of valuable experience at KPMG prior to law school, Mauro is able to read, review and understand financial statements and tax returns on a detailed and sophisticated level that is uncommon among most attorneys. His understanding of important accounting concepts has enabled him to negotiate substantial value for his clients in connection with their business transactions.
In addition to practicing law, Mauro serves as the President of the Croatian American Bar Association and serves on the Executive Committee of the Association of Croatian American Professionals. He has had speaking engagements and authored numerous articles on matters related to corporate and securities law, including business acquisitions and choice of entities for start-up ventures.
