Ajay Singh, Esquire, CPA

Ajay Singh, Esquire, CPA, is adept at helping business owners and executives construct sound legal and business strategies.  As both a licensed attorney and a certified public accountant, Ajay uses his extensive professional knowledge and training to provide a comprehensive approach to meet clients’ needs, whether he is helping a client select the most suitable business entity to form during start up, or working through the terms of a complex transaction for the sale of a multi-million dollar business.

Prior to attending law school, Ajay worked for Deloitte & Touche LLP in its Atlanta office where he advised both publicly traded and private companies in a wide variety of industries and he applies much of this experience in his day to day representation of clients at Hunter Business Law.

In his role as outside general counsel to local, national and international clients of the firm, Ajay helps clients negotiate contract terms, raise capital, grow through acquisitions, issue equity incentive compensation to key employees and advisors, and prepare for and close on the sale of businesses.  Clients range from pre-revenue start-ups to businesses that are valued in excess of $30,000,000.

Finally, Ajay works with clients on their dispute resolution and litigation needs, crafting sound mediation and litigation strategies as well as providing litigation support services such as forensic accounting.  His previous experience as an Adjunct Professor of Negotiation and Mediation at his alma mater, University of Florida Levin College of Law, has proven invaluable as he navigates clients through the negotiation of their various business transactions and mediation of their disputes.

Ajay Singh was instrumental in the sale of our business. His legal and financial acumen, along with his tremendous M&A experience, provided invaluable guidance and insights throughout the process. He helped us to negotiate the best possible deal with a focus on both our short- and the long-term needs and wants. The support system that Hunter Business Law brought to the table throughout our acquisition proceedings was incredible and not only addressed every need that arose but most importantly, provided us with complete confidence that they were working on our behalf, as a true partner.
