Regardless of the type of business transaction, having an attorney protecting your interests makes good business sense. In our view it’s cheaper to pay a good business attorney at the front end of a deal than to pay a litigation attorney to fight it out when the deal blows up. The business transaction services we offer help our clients steer around roadblocks, disputes and bad deals.
Complex business transactions require both an understanding of business law, commercial finance, and a tenacious ability to bear down and get the deal done. That is where we shine.
Our clients want to grow and prosper their businesses. We help them get there.
We have high standards for drafting clear, comprehensive transaction documents. In protecting client’s interests, we balance an attention to detail against the larger financial picture.
We also take pride in helping start-up and entrepreneurial companies organize their businesses, begin their operations, and endure the growth pains.
For decades we have skillfully guided clients through business transactions. We look forward to doing the same for old and new clients alike for decades to come.
