Our Firm’s corporate lawyers counsel our business clients in all of the traditional areas of corporate practice. McElroy Deutsch’s corporate attorneys regularly represent clients in matters involving asset purchase and sales, stock acquisitions and dispositions, mergers and divestitures, “roll-up” transactions, leveraged buyouts, as well as joint ventures and strategic alliances. They prepare and negotiate commercial contracts, including buy-sell agreements, shareholder agreements, employment agreements, non-disclosure and non-competition agreements, intellectual property contracts, including software and technology licenses, development agreements, services agreements, as well as many other transactional matters.
Our business clients cover the entire spectrum of industry, ranging from entrepreneurial startup businesses to large privately-held and publicly-held companies and banks. Our corporate attorneys regularly provide strategic advice and practical solutions on the planning, organization, recapitalization, and restructuring of existing businesses. We guide our clients through the applicable legal landscape, assuring compliance with laws and regulations and assuming responsibility for managing all issues in connection with the undertaking – all with the goal of meeting our clients’ business objectives to the fullest extent.
Our corporate lawyers also counsel our clients on day-to-day business issues as they arise. They offer assistance on subjects such as structuring and financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, franchising, negotiation of vendor contracts, tax planning, compliance with state and federal laws and regulations, shareholder disputes, and the enforcement of restrictive covenants.
