Business and Corporate Law

The business and corporate law group offers guidance throughout the life cycle of a business from choosing a vehicle – limited liability company, Sub S Corporation, or an alternative form of partnership – to repositioning a business for growth or preparing ownership for an exit strategy.

We are adept at evaluating business opportunities and plans to grow organically or synthetically. We routinely perform rigorous and sophisticated due diligence and legal analysis of complex business transactions and acquisitive/non-acquisitive reorganizations.

The business and corporate law group counsels a diverse group of businesses with annual revenues exceeding 50M and growth-oriented professional firms (e.g., technology, accountants, health practitioners, architects, planners and engineers).

Our clients also include CBEs, MBEs, WBEs, GSEs, government contractors, trade associations, investment funds, developers, non-profit and faith-based organizations.
