General Business

Good corporate counsel requires more than generalized knowledge of business and the law.

We offer practical business and legal counsel, focusing on industry specifics, our clients’ unique needs, and the changing legal and regulatory climate.

The terms for corporate law are familiar: financing, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, offerings and real estate transactions. But the specifics have changed considerably – from regulatory issues to new tax considerations. We are well-versed in those changes, and have pioneered innovative approaches to address our clients’ immediate goals and long term objectives.

Our primary areas of industry focus are financial services, real estate, energy, life sciences, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and software. Client services range from counseling, financing and fund formation work to structuring complex mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, offerings and real estate securitization transactions.

In addition to transactional work, we prepare and review SEC filings and advise on other regulatory and public disclosure matters. Our corporate attorneys also advise on the entire spectrum of financial restructuring and equity financing for public companies, as well as for private and other closely held businesses.

We work in cross-practice teams as a matter of routine, providing clients with a seamless, comprehensive and cost-effective approach to legal and business matters.
