W. Jeff Brown

W. Jeff Brown recently joined Business Acquisitions, LTD as a Mergers and Acquisitions Specialist. He brings a unique and valuable perspective to the role, having managed business acquisitions from all angles in the past 25 years. As a former M&A attorney, Jeff has extensive experience counseling clients in the purchase and sale of businesses and an intimate knowledge of the legal and business issues surrounding these transactions. Jeff has also bought and sold several businesses on his own behalf in the construction, consumer shows, e-commerce, and professional services industries.

After graduating from Vanderbilt Law School, Jeff worked as an associate with two of Atlanta’s largest law firms, focusing on securities, general corporate, intellectual property, and M&A law. In 1999, he moved to Denver to serve as in-house counsel in the internet and multi-media group at Qwest Communications (now known as CenturyLink). He left Qwest in 2001 to become North American General Counsel for e-peopleserve, a joint venture between Accenture and British Telecom. While there he negotiated large transactions throughout the U.S. including outsourcing agreements and business acquisitions.

In 2003 he founded his own law firm with an emphasis on general corporate, M&A, franchise, and intellectual property matters. Jeff represented hundreds of clients ranging from single member start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. His primary focus was on small to mid-sized business in the $1M to $10M range which allowed Jeff the opportunity to work directly with business owners in structuring, growing and exiting their companies.
In 2009, Jeff sold his law firm to concentrate on his outside ventures which included angel investing and the acquisition of companies. Over the past decade he has bought and sold several companies, with an emphasis on increasing their profitability and positioning them for sale. He also served on the Board of Directors of a national franchise restaurant company.

Prior to attending Vanderbilt University Law School on the prestigious Truman Scholarship, Jeff graduated with honors from the University of Mississippi. He is currently licensed with the Colorado Real Estate Commission and the Colorado Bar Association, though he does not currently engage in the practice of law. Jeff is also a member of the International Business Brokers Association and the Colorado Association of Business Intermediaries.

In his free time, Jeff enjoys spending time with his wife Angie and their two boys. His hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, golfing, and travel.
