The Corporate Group assists the Firm's clients in matters relating to general corporate and financing matters. Members of the Group have assisted foreign and domestic multinational corporations, financial institutions, start-up companies and governmental entities in general corporate matters, tax planning, lending and leasing transactions, international and domestic sales contracts and import and export regulatory advice.
We work closely with officers, directors and shareholders of our corporate clients to provide effective and efficient solutions to their operational and expansion plans. For clients of closely held entities, we assist them in maintaining shareholder relations and providing long term advice on how to prevent avoidable shareholder disputes. Our attorneys are also leaders in the field of employment relations, assisting our clients in formulating effective policies to minimize legitimate employee claims and lawsuits.
The attorneys in our firm have represented both lenders and borrowers and lessors and lessees, giving them valuable insight on the particular concerns of both sides. Such experience enables them to suggest effective solutions to particular credit support and operational issues while protecting their client's interests in the applicable transaction.
Our counseling in the listed areas below includes advice and documentation for implementing the financing as well as “exit-strategies” for banks and finance companies to manage troubled credits and borrowers that resort to bankruptcies. Our expertise in the area of lease financing is complimented by a similar capability in the area of retail installment sales financing and automobile dealer floor plan financing.
In providing our clients with a diverse background of experience in corporate finance, members of the Group have special expertise in the following areas:
In addition to assisting our clients in the preparation, negotiation and consummation of transactions, we also assist them in accessing the capital markets and obtaining the necessary financing for their projects. We do not believe that our role as the attorney is limited to the legal aspects of a transaction, but we also offer our significant experience in the above areas to effectively advise our clients on the business ramifications of their actions.
