LSI's Founder

Frank Zaffere

Frank Zaffere is the founder of LegalSolutionsInternational LLC. He is a highly accomplished business lawyer with more than 30 years experience in virtually all aspects of corporate and commercial law. Mr. Zaffere’s areas of concentration have included corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions and regulatory matters.

Before establishing LSI, Mr. Zaffere was a senior officer and the general counsel of a Chicago based, privately-owned holding company with controlling interests in a wide variety of companies engaged in manufacturing and service businesses throughout the United States and in Canada. While in this position, Mr. Zaffere handled or oversaw a significant number of acquisitions and was involved in both the negotiation of those transactions and the related financing arrangements that were required. He also coordinated all litigation matters in which his employer was involved. Much of Mr. Zaffere's time was directed to the retention and supervision of outside counsel who were involved in the handling of transactional and litigation matters.

Mr. Zaffere began his career on Wall Street with Sullivan & Cromwell where, among other things, he handled complex corporate finance transactions for domestic and foreign issuers and underwriters, as well as equity participants in large leveraged leases; was involved in so-called "friendly" tender offer transactions; and was included on an elite team that specialized in the regulatory affairs of mutual funds and their advisers. In 1980, he moved to Chicago where he continued his earlier practice specialties and expanded his areas of concentration to include mergers and acquisitions and the representation of securities broker-dealers and commodity firms.

Mr. Zaffere received his undergraduate degree, cum laude, from the University of Notre Dame and his law degree from Georgetown University, where he was a member of the executive board of the international law journal. He is licensed to practice law in the States of New York and Illinois, and the District of Columbia, and enjoys an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell. He also is a member of the Turnaround Management Association, an international organization whose members include bankers, accountants, lawyers and other professionals involved in the corporate renewal process.
