  • Managing Partner

"As a business and transactional attorney, my focus is on details. I strive to be overly protective of my client's needs and at the same time provide quality and cost effective advice. I find that keeping a client fully informed at every step of a transaction is also beneficial and translates into successful results and satisfied clients."

Ken is presently serving as the firm's Managing Partner. He is also a member of Bacon Wilson's corporate, commercial and municipal law departments. For over 20 years, Ken has represented commercial banks in all aspects of lending and workout practices, coupled with representing closely held business entities in all aspects of operations.
