She has represented clients in complex matters including asset and equity sales and purchases, mergers and business reorganizations, and debt and equity offerings and redemptions.

    Theresa joined DP&F to pursue her passion for working with clients in the wine, beer, spirits, restaurant, and hospitality industries. Theresa is honored to be assisting producers and business owners as they offer high-quality products and services to the Napa and Sonoma communities.
