Donald Densborn

Leaders in Law endorses Donald Densborn as our exclusively recommended Corporate Law expert in the USA – Indiana. If you wish to get in touch with Donald please use the contact information provided above.

Don Densborn is a seasoned business lawyer, who represents companies in a myriad of industries, including manufacturing, service, real estate, technology, distribution, logistics, alternative energy, metals, senior living, private equity, prepaid card, banking and finance. His non-bank clients are primarily situated in an established middle market, but include others which are startup, earlier stage or emerging.

His practice is focused on transaction work, particularly company acquisition, disposition and combination transactions. He also is regularly engaged in corporate finance transactions, including commercial financial, mezzanine loan, venture capital and distress transactions, and securities offerings. He has long experience at real estate construction, leasing, conveyancing, and mortgaging, including the title insurance and survey issues associated therewith.

He is a trusted adviser to several companies at the board level, where corporate governance, compliance, strategy, fiduciary and succession matters are paramount. He frequently counsels clients on choice of entity, having served on the Uniform Law Commission drafting committees on limited liability companies and the business organization code, and he is commonly involved in drafting shareholder buy-sell agreements and resolving shareholder disputes. His experience includes an array of commercial transactions, including sales, leasing, licensing, distribution, franchising, and consignment transactions and arrangements. Secured transaction work, too, has long been an area of concentration.

According to Chambers USA, Mr. Densborn is considered by his peers to be “very professional and practical” and possessed with an “impressive intellect”, “broad knowledge”, and “deep expertise” in corporate law.

The Densborn Blachly Difference

  • A Refreshing Alternative

The legal profession is experiencing wrenching change. The future belongs to those nimble enough to adapt. Technology is diffusing the old storehouses of legal expertise. Innovation is occurring in small labs without any surrender to mediocrity. The future clearly belongs to those who can best acquire, retrieve and apply knowledge. Still, “growth for growths sake” is pursued as a strategy. The bureaucratic onset and constant tumult that follow tend to shift attention inward, away from client service. Driving statistics, rather than creating client value, too often becomes the order of the day. Densborn Blachly provides a refreshing alternative. It offers the expertise that business clients demand without the baggage that they abhor.

  • A Next Generation Approach

Just as law schools divide the law into courses, law firms divide into narrow enclaves of expertise. But the problems and projects of business clients never present in a vacuum or are so neatly packaged. Densborn Blachly believes that differentiating service requires a more holistic approach. Its value proposition is experienced legal judgment leavened by a passion for business success. Out of shared passion, enduring relationships develop, and clients are better served. Thus, Densborn Blachly is mission-driven to ensure that its lawyers are well-grounded in the science of business and well-rounded in the practice of law—able to quickly grasp, at least rudimentarily, the clients business and its position in the industry it serves.

  • A Laser-Focus on Business

Densborn Blachly is proud to serve the Midwestern business community. Midwesterners are independent, competitive, practical and productive. They innovate before they realize they do. They esteem pedigree not nearly as much as getting the job done. Densborn Blachly is of the same ilk. At Densborn Blachly, innovation occurs in the field and on the fly. Practical solutions are found in places previously unexplored. Client interests are protected against underappreciated risks. Desired outcomes are reached through tenacious pursuit. Densborn Blachly lawyers know how to work hard with intuition, creativity and effectiveness honed over decades of experience. And they relish the competition of it all — just as their clients do.
