John Arbogast


John Arbogast has represented clients ranging from individuals and early-stage start-ups to established enterprises in transactional matters. Such matters include: contracts, company organization and capital structure, finance transactions, angel and venture investment transactions, securities issuances and placements, mergers and acquisitions, software and technology licensing, intellectual property protection, international transactions, regulatory matters, real estate, employment and incentive compensation matters.

A native of Kentucky, John graduated from the University of Chicago with both his B.A. and J.D. In 2008, he began his career as a corporate associate at Mayer Brown LLP. From 2010 to 2014, he worked in a variety of in-house legal positions before spending nearly five years at a boutique Chicago corporate firm that was eventually acquired by Tucker Ellis LLP, handling a variety of transactional matters for start-ups to mid-size companies. From 2019 to 2021, John handled mergers and acquisitions at Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP before starting his own solo practice.

“Transactional law is an important part of the legal process for businesses. After years of experience in transactional law, I am eager to provide insight to the Stanton Law team and clientele.”

When he is not working hard for his clients, John’s four children keep him very busy. In his limited free time, he can be found reading C.S. Lewis or studying Eastern Orthodox theology.
