As a Managing Partner of Latimer LeVay Fyock LLC, Cary R. Latimer intuitively understands the challenges faced by the business owners, entrepreneurs, and other professionals he has the privilege to represent. He also knows that the value he provides as counsel not only comes from securing positive outcomes or developing creative solutions, but also the focused, efficient, and cost-effective manner in which he does so.

Cary's practice has a particular emphasis on representing entrepreneurs, investors, and closely held and emerging businesses. Taking a realistic approach that sidelines distracting, irrelevant, or emotional issues, he advises his clients on a host of legal and business matters, including corporate formation and capital structure, financing strategies, corporate governance and other corporate strategic planning, and real estate acquisition and disposition. Cary counsels companies through all stages of growth, including formation, capital raises, and negotiating and consummating vendor and employee agreements, as well as acquisitions, dispositions, mergers, and asset and stock acquisitions.

The relationships that Cary builds with his clients extend beyond providing sound guidance and for their closely held and emerging businesses. He also serves as a trusted advisor for them on estate planning, wealth protection, and business succession matters.

A graduate of the University of Michigan, Cary earned his law degree from Loyola University Chicago School of Law, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Loyola University Chicago Law Review. When not helping his clients, Cary likes to spend his time with his wife and three children.  A lover of travel and the outdoors, he is also an avid cyclist, riding his bike to work almost every day.
