Constance R. (Connie) Barnhart, Attorney At Law and Managing Member, founded Barnhart Law PLC in March, 2009, after practicing law for more than 30 years at large law firms, including most recently 12 and one-half years as a Partner at the law firm of Holland & Knight LLP.
Barnhart Law PLC is a niche law firm that concentrates its practice in business law matters, with an industry focus that frequently involves technology and internet law matters and renewable energy transactions. The firm currently represents Scandinavian, European and U.S. corporate clients in industries including information & communications technology, renewable energy (wind and solar), SMS/ MMS text messaging, internet businesses, and medical and safety technology, among others, in both cross-border and U.S. transactions and contractual matters.
In more than 30 years of practice, Ms. Barnhart has handled, as lead attorney, many substantial international and domestic mergers & acquisitions, wind energy project financings, solar energy development and supply agreements, joint ventures, securities offerings, venture capital investments, corporate reorganizations, distributorships, licensing, internet and technology law matters, and other commercial, securities, and financial transactions for U.S., Scandinavian, European and Latin American corporate clients.
Ms. Barnhart is fluent in English, Spanish and Norwegian, and conversant in Swedish and Danish. She is licensed to practice law in the States of Florida, New York, Texas and Minnesota.
She founded Barnhart Law PLC in order to continue providing her U.S. and international clients the same service they were receiving at a large law firm, but at the lower billing rate and greater flexibility for individualized service and personal attention permitted by a niche law firm with lower overhead.
