04 Corporate Practice
Companies seek trusted counsel upon whom they can rely not only in a crisis or during a difficult transition, but on an everyday basis and in future planning
From publicly traded corporations to family-owned businesses, companies of all sizes seek commercial stability and growth in an increasingly demanding environment. Increased regulation and competition, and the globalization of doing business, create additional challenges and complications in the day-to-day operations of a business. New corporate governance regulations have brought about significant change in how business is conducted, and technology continues to accelerate the pace of transactions and the need for information.

Our skills and commitment to service span many industries including consumer products, distribution, e-commerce, energy, financial services, health care, information technology, insurance, manufacturing, media, pharmaceuticals, professional services, retail, technology, telecommunications and transportation. We focus our corporate practice in areas such as mergers and acquisitions, investment management, corporate counseling, commercial transactions, international business and tax planning.
