Corporate / Business

Our corporate and business practice group represents clients ranging from individual entrepreneurs and start-up companies to Fortune 500 public companies and most everything in between. Many of our clients look to us as their outside general counsel, seeking general business legal advice and counseling on the myriad of issues that they face each day. We handle such matters as entity structuring, corporate governance, SEC compliance, financings and acquisitions, private offerings, buy-sell arrangements, employment arrangements and licensing agreements. Our hands-on experience in a broad range of industries, and our understanding of the practical financial and operational needs of today’s businesses, helps to separate us from most firms. We enjoy the challenge of teaming with our clients to see their businesses grow and prosper.

We foster a collaborative approach with our clients characterized by responsive and open communication that begins with the first meeting and continues throughout our representation. Our passionate and pragmatic advocacy for our clients has forged enduring relationships focused on our clients’ needs and objectives, because results matter.
