The Firm provides a broad range of general business and corporate legal services, assisting clients in the structuring, negotiation, implementation, and operation of their business ventures. Our attorneys provide focused services in general corporate law and contract negotiation, compliance with securities laws and corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, competition/antitrust law, personal data and e-privacy, corporate finance etc.

We represent investment banking firms, commercial banks and large corporations, listed and non-listed, advising them on significant and complex transactions, including financing, acquisitions and restructuring. In addition, we work with private equity investors and start-up companies engaged in early stage financing as well as strategic joint ventures or other combinations. 
We are often asked to join client teams set up to address problems that cut across legal, business, financial and public relations lines. We are comfortable working with co-professionals, both inside and outside of the company, working toward a joint understanding of the issues and helping develop strategies that are consistent with the business objectives of our client. 
Although our expertise is grounded in legal issues, longtime experience have made us comfortable with accounting, financial, technical and strategic issues that have become ubiquitous in the planning process. Our business clients come to rely on us for practical, experience-based advice that has been built up over decades of representing and advising business owners and managers. 
We are motivated to know our clients intimately, not just so that we can be nimble and efficient in achieving day-to-day business goals, but also so that we can provide insights and point out constraints that can affect desired outcomes. We consider our client's objectives before implementing a plan and we carefully evaluate business relationships before discussing approaches or drafting documents.
