Corporate

Business leaders know the value of having a legal adviser on board through all stages of growth – a team committed to putting their strategies into action with a focus on the details. That’s what brings lasting success, and that’s what you can count on from our team.

Working closely with our corporate and entrepreneurial clients over time on their business issues significantly strengthens the advice we can give them – especially when transformational events unfold. Understanding your business and helping you build its infrastructure is what we do.

We provide comprehensive advice and formulate specific plans across a full range of general corporate and securities issues. From choosing the right business model to negotiating a strategic partnership or major contract, we work with you to create a sound foundation for any future strategic move.

When you need advice on important governance or high-stakes situations, we draw on our expertise across practices to shape the best plan. And we leverage our strong relations with government and regulatory agencies, as well as leading law firms in other jurisdictions, to extend our reach and help ensure a successful outcome.
