Whether our country is in the middle of an economic downturn or stable, growing economic times, your business faces a complex world with changing legal environments. Our Business Entities and Transactions team provides its clients with the wide array of legal advice businesses require. From new entrepreneurs and small businesses to long-established, large public companies, we assist a business client from the formation or acquisition of a business through financing and day-to-day operations.

When the time is appropriate for selling to a third-party buyer or transferring the business to the next generation of family ownership, we will be here to smoothly guide the process. Our attorneys can provide advice on strategy and structure as you and your business raise startup, operating and expansion capital, with sophisticated securities advice on private and public offerings and negotiation of bank loan documents. We are also experienced on the other side of the table in financing transactions, representing banks, venture capital funds, investment banking firms and angel investors. And because tax consequences of all these transactions are a constant consideration, one of our tax attorneys is generally a part of the team of lawyers serving a business client.
