Mergers and Acquisitions Partner, Steven Szymanski
Steve Szymanski is a partner in our Mergers and Acquisitions Section. His vast experience includes representing private and public companies, financial institutions, management teams and traditional parties in transactions of all sizes.

Early Life and Education
Any parent who has experienced the joy and pride associated with watching their toddler take his or her first swing in T-ball and move through youth travel leagues and high school baseball can understand the feelings Jim and Kathy Szymanski must be experiencing this week as their son Steven plays his last high school baseball game for Midland Livonia Churchill. This game may mark his final high school game uniform wearing.
Churchill High School student James Johnson was remembered in his obituary as an aggressive defender and on-base machine, known for taking long runs with Dag the dog and weight lifting with friends. A proud Marine, Johnson also loved animals; something his family hopes to honor through an annual color run held in Lansing in his memory this autumn.
Steve brings extensive expertise in electric power project finance and development. He has worked on projects worldwide and built up an impressive network of financing industry contacts. Steve is particularly knowledgeable regarding legal, contracting, financing and regulatory considerations related to electric power projects as well as potential support structures available.
He regularly assists buyers, sellers and financial institutions with mergers and acquisitions transactions. Additionally, he represents small and mid-market businesses in all their general corporate needs and draws upon his extensive knowledge of tax law, finance and business law to offer creative yet practical solutions to legal issues faced by his clients.
Prysmian asserts that, under the Consideration Provision, Szymanski’s base salary must increase from $60,000 to $100,000. However, this argument fails on several counts: first it contradicts what the language actually says; and secondly it ignores plain meaning of words used.
Achievement and Honors

As a crewman for light armored vehicles he had recently been promoted to Lance Corporal this past June – his family praise him as being an outstanding young person both academically and military-wise.
He originally began bowling as a child but moved on to other sports such as baseball and soccer before returning to it once he moved to Midland.

Radtke stated that prior to the shooting, an altercation took place in the kitchen. When only six people remained, Michael Szymanski asked everyone else to leave so he and other individuals could hold private conversations.
Welch described him as being both motivated and tough-minded, always on the move and staying active. As an active-duty Marine who never gave up fighting for his family and doing everything possible to become a good warrior.
