Mike McGovern is a Partner with Reiter, Brunel & Dunn, where his practice centers around corporate, securities, and tax law. He represents domestic and foreign startups, growth-stage companies, private equity funds, investors, and industry professionals in the areas of capital markets and private placements, venture capital and private equity, mergers and acquisitions, private equity funds, funds of funds, corporate finance, real estate, tax planning and structuring, tax controversy and disputes, cross-border transactions, international corporate structures, general corporate counsel and corporate governance, and securities law and compliance. Mike works directly with his clients on transactions focused primarily in the tech, fin tech, bio tech, consumer products (CPG), real estate, and financial and investment products industries, typically ranging in deal size from several hundred thousand dollars to well into the nine-figure range, and involving parties located in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia.

Mike began his career in the corporate, securities, and tax practice group at a nationally recognized firm. As he continued to refine his expertise, and in the pursuit of moving away from the massive big law firm model, he relocated to Texas to practice at a local Austin, Texas firm dedicated to serving companies, investors, and industry professionals located in Austin and across the globe with a personal and attentive approach to client relationships, which has remained his style of practice ever since. During law school, he clerked for an international financial investment institution in Washington, D.C. and the Oklahoma Office of the Attorney General. Before pursuing his legal career, Mike served as a Financial Advisor for a worldwide financial institution.

Mike earned his Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Taxation with Highest Honors from Georgetown Law in 2012.
