Coming from a family of MBAs, business was always in Liz Banks' blood. She found a way to mix her inherited interest in business with her love of law by becoming a corporate attorney.

In her practice, Liz represents large corporations on both securities issues and M&A deals. She helps clients navigate various issues such as preparing quarterly and annual filings, drafting disclosure schedules and merger agreements, and everything in between.

In college, Liz interacted with various nonprofits, developing a passion for the nonprofit world. After graduating, she worked for a D.C.-based cancer foundation before heading to law school, where she ran Harvard's Public Interest Auction. She remains passionate about helping nonprofits through her pro bono work.
