Bryan Wasser is MSK’s resident foodie and can be counted on to provide a recommendation to just about any flavor of restaurant around the Greater Los Angeles area. That same ability to recite facts from his encyclopedic knowledge of food leave clients marveling at his capacity to recall the smallest of detail in merger agreements spanning hundreds of pages.
Bryan’s understanding of structuring private equity deals and navigating corporate securities transactions is well grounded by his background as a Certified Public Accountant. This former Big 4 alumnus navigates his way through the supporting financial statements of a transaction with ease, a skill he realized he had as a kid when running around his father’s CPA office. While many of his friends were building forts made of sticks, Bryan was playing with a 10-key.
Bryan fittingly earned his nickname of Wasserpedia as a young Associate around the firm by consistently recounting the 100 ways to cook an egg or more important that the 100 folds of a chef’s hat are meant to represent a chef’s knowledge of that very fact.
Mr. Wasser is an Associate in the Los Angeles office. He has experience representing public and private companies in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, private equity, international transactions, corporate finance, state and federal securities reporting, including Exchange Act and Section 16 compliance, and general corporate/business matters. He also has experience representing entrepreneurs and emerging companies in corporate formation, venture capital financings and general corporate/business matters.
