General Corporate

From the firm's inception, we have provided solution-oriented and efficient general corporate counseling, advice and services to a substantial number of business entities, large and small, both publicly traded and privately held. Our ability to provide our clients with advice on a wide range of business law issues is reflected in being the only firm named by Chambers USA 2018 to its top tier, “Band 1”, for Corporate/M&A law firms in Connecticut. We have been in the top tier for sixteen straight years.

Our general corporate services can address all or any portion of a client's legal needs, including the following areas (many of which are discussed in more detail elsewhere):

  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Financings (both equity and debt)
  • Corporate Governance and Corporate Laws (and governance and laws of other business entities, such as limited liability companies and partnerships)
  • Securities Laws
  • Executive Compensation and Benefits
  • Employment Laws
  • Corporate and Partnership Tax
  • Dispute Resolution and Litigation
  • Drafting and Negotiation of Sales, Distribution, and Other Business Agreements
  • Leasing-Real Property
  • Structuring Cross Border Transactions and Investments
  • Joint Ventures

We are committed to understanding the client's business, priorities, preferences and risk tolerances and becoming an integral part of the business team. We understand that general corporate matters must be effected in a timely and cost effective manner and we pride ourselves on our responsiveness and highly collaborative approach (both internally and with the client). Depending on the requirements and preferences of the client, we can collaborate with clients to develop a cost effective "out-sourced" general counsel arrangement.
