Our clients call on us to advise them on the appropriate entity form for their business, taking into account tax and other considerations. We routinely assist in structuring new corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and other business entities, and providing guidance on corporate governance and shareholder, buy-sell agreements and complex financing transactions.
Legal advice for this practice area has included corporate governance counseling, general corporate representation, private equity and venture capital matters, and technology transactions and licensing. We often function as outside general counsel for clients without internal legal staffs, and assist with all of their legal needs, including structuring, negotiating, and documenting commercial transactions, supply and distribution agreements, license agreements, executive compensation and other employment-related agreements.
We also structure joint venture and strategic alliance transactions in a variety of industries as strategic alternatives to mergers and acquisitions or limited buy-sell relationships.
