We counsel public and private companies on all aspects of corporate governance and help clients form and structure partnerships, limited liability companies, and corporations. We negotiate mergers, divestures, and acquisitions for companies as well as strategic alliances, joint ventures, and other business combinations. We also have extensive experience in business restructurings, venture capital and other early-stage financings, along with private placements of equity and debt.
Our clients know that we provide straightforward, innovative financial solutions and legal counsel. We communicate hypothetical scenarios, try to predict what could be “around the corner,” and give advice our clients can really use.
Once you become our client, we make sure you know about new laws and regulations that affect you. And once we get to know your business, we can help you identify where you’re vulnerable and what branches of the business are likely to be troublesome.
We represent manufacturing, construction, software, technology and insurance companies, real estate developers, merchant banks, securities firms and other financial institutions, borrowers and creditors in financings, private placements, project financings, leases and other structured financings, lender liability disputes, workouts, bankruptcy cases, and surety matters and related litigation. And we’ve worked with clients large and small— individual entrepreneurs, start-ups, emerging growth companies, and Fortune 500 businesses.
Many of our clients are engaged in regulated industries, such as insurance, banking, and securities. For those clients, we also handle their legislative, administrative, and regulatory matters.
