Because our team represents clients across many different aspects of corporate and business law, our guidance offers practical, client-focused advice on minimizing liability in both federal and state tax matters, as well as structuring deals in the manner most favorable for our client.

Our attorneys work with clients interested in expanding or capitalizing on their business’ success with potential opportunities, sourced from a vast network of business consultants and advisors who work hand-in-hand with our firm. Whether assisting a buyer or seller, we work to identify the unique issues encompassing their position within the transaction. When negotiating a complex merger or acquisition, working with attorneys who know how to identify the issues and to negotiate those issues into a definitive agreement is crucial to achieving success.

We also understand that once the parties have agreed upon the basic terms of a deal, time can become a deal’s worst enemy. Changes in the economy, loss of a major customer, a worldwide pandemic, lawsuits or threatened lawsuits, and labor disputes, to name a few, can all cause a buyer to pull out of a transaction or reduce its offer. For these reasons we employ all of our resources to bring our client’s transaction to a close as soon as possible
