Meet Josh

Joshua Clark grew up in Alcester, South Dakota.  He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in history and political science from the University of Sioux Falls in 2007.  He then went to the University of South Dakota, where he received a Master of Arts degree in history in 2009.  After receiving his master’s degree, he attended the University of Virginia School of Law, where he received his Juris Doctor in 2012.
He has been practicing law with regard to mergers and acquisitions and general corporate business since September of 2012, as he previously worked for large international law firms before moving back home to South Dakota.  His focus on servicing clients efficiently and correctly led to him joining in the formation of Halbach|Szwarc Law Firm in 2023, so that he could work with experienced attorneys to help provide any needed legal services to his clients.  He currently helps new and current business leaders with all their legal business needs, and he is focused on applying his legal experience to quickly and correctly solve his clients’ business problems.
Joshua has extensive experience providing legal services to hundreds of companies, including start-up companies, private equity companies, small local companies, and large Fortune 25 companies, on all sorts of corporate and business issues. He has represented dozens of clients in sales, acquisitions, and mergers with values ranging from $50,000 to $1,200,000,000. He also provides legal assistance to companies regarding in-house management, including customer service, vendor, real estate, commercial, equity, employment, and ancillary agreements.
Joshua grew up on a farm in South Dakota, and has a wife, Melissa, and two children, a daughter, Quinn, and a son, Wyatt.  He enjoys college football, woodworking, and fishing.
