The complexity of business operations requires corporations to confront the challenges of globalization, technological change, and economic disturbance. To face these challenges, clients need lawyers who are both aggressive and forward-thinking.
We have a well-established corporate practice which has been responsible for providing sophisticated advice to a diverse base of businesses and entrepreneurs for over 28 years. We have given advice to individuals, family businesses, public and private companies, government entities, corporate boards and committees, directors and officers, investors and investment funds, nonprofits, and trade associations in a wide range of industries. Our corporate experience includes regulatory compliance, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, tax, securities, finance, bankruptcy, and health law.
Our creative and determined practitioners understand that there is always more than one single method in reaching a mutually acceptable outcome. The firms’ initiative to always find another way is what differentiates us from the crowd of other practitioners.
The largest challenge faced by corporate lawyers is one of dual responsibility. It is necessary for corporate lawyers to possess the requisite skills to be both a trusted advisor and an aggressive dealmaker.
Our representation of clients at important corporate negotiations constitutes an attempt to reach a mutually beneficial agreement as efficiently as possible. Our deep understanding of the client’s corporate structure coupled with our unrivalled negotiation skills ensures that even the toughest negotiations remain productive by employing methods of skillful negotiation, respect for the other parties, and an instinctive understanding of when to take and when to give.
We prioritise obtaining thorough knowledge and understanding of our client’s business structure and goals to facilitate effective communication allowing us to tell clients not what they want to hear, but what they need to know. This ensures that we are able to provide highly customised advice on a full range of corporate issues in satisfaction of a client’s immediate tactical needs and to further their overall mission.
