Business Transactions

Whether your business is in the initial start-up phase, growing in size and profits, or preparing to wind down, sell, or transition, there are a number of transactions that will affect your business structure, liability, or interests. We represent our business clients throughout the life of their companies to ensure that all transactions protect their interests to the fullest extent possible under the law.

When we serve as corporate counsel, we approach the role as experienced client advocates, making it a priority to learn about your business and industry from the inside out, and ready to go to the mat to protect our clients during negotiations. We provide counsel to effectively navigate, structure, and ultimately document many types of business transactions.

Some of the transaction types we handle are outlined below. Please note that there are countless types of commercial transactions and situations, and the following are merely examples of some we have encountered.
