Biography

Mauro Viskovic joined the Firm in 2020 as a Partner in the Firm’s corporate and transactions practice group, where he focuses on providing high quality and cost-effective solutions to clients’ legal matters, leveraging his over 20 years of legal experience.

Mauro practices law primarily in the areas of corporate law, healthcare law, 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, employment agreements, mergers and acquisitions, and liquidity events. In addition, Mauro represents investors in all aspects of corporate finance transactions.

In connection with his healthcare law practice, Mauro has represented a myriad of healthcare providers, including home care facilities, radiology centers, diagnostic testing providers, ambulatory surgery centers, medical groups, physical therapists, physicians, dentists, and other healthcare professionals. He handles all types of health care transactions, including practice sales and acquisitions, private equity deals, employment transactions, and administrative service organization agreements, while navigating the complex web of federal and state health care regulations.

Mauro’s practice focuses also on the representation of hedge fund portfolio managers and other financial services professionals. His services include: (1) facilitating the transition of moving to a new investment advisory firm or starting a new firm, while addressing non-compete and other restrictive covenants; (2) reviewing and negotiating of seed investment agreements; (3) reviewing and negotiating of vendor and counterparty agreements, including prime broker and ISDA agreements, electronic trading agreements, fund administration agreements and market data licenses; and (4) preparing, reviewing and negotiating 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.
