Counsel, Chair, Corporate Department

Overview

Mariel descends from a multi-generational family of New Jersey entrepreneurs. Growing up in a small business household influenced her decision to study finance for her undergraduate work and choose corporate law as her area of concentration as an attorney.  Often acting as general counsel for her clients, Mariel incorporates these experiences as well as her legal knowledge into her advice to her clients.  Mariel understands that a legal analysis often is just one component of a business decision.

As chair of Parker McCay’s corporate department, she handles a variety of legal matters, including mergers and acquisitions, corporate formation and development, operations, governance and compliance, and risk management.  During her legal career, Mariel’s clients include small start-up companies, non-profits, small business, family organizations, as well as large, multinational, publicly traded corporations.  Her legal representation of these companies has involved all facets of corporate law.  She drafts and negotiates contracts and other documents including stock and asset purchase agreements, commercial lease and sales agreements, and corporate organizational documents and resolutions.  She has secured favorable outcomes for her corporate clients across all industries.   

An area of specialty for Mariel is matters relating to marketing, social media, and other promotional activities, including sweepstakes and other prize promotion contests.  She understands federal, state, and other regulations to ensure compliance for her clients.

Prior to joining Parker McCay, Mariel was focused in gaming law as part of the corporate department for a large national firm.  Ms. Giletto has experience representing the gaming equipment vendors, private equity and investment banking firms, Internet gaming companies and casinos.
