Business Transactions

Chasm or pillar of strength? Keeping you on solid ground.

In negotiations, business transactions, and advisory roles, we strive to find win/win solutions. We do not view negotiations as a zero sum game. We focus on making deals, not wrecking deals.

We are proud to service all types of small and mid-market privately held business entities. Whether we are advising our clients regarding day-to-day issues impacting operations, corporate maintenance, or competition, or representing a new or long-term client in a transaction, we view ourselves as our clients’ trusted adviser and strategic partner.

Some clients utilize us as quasi outside general counsel, seeking day-to-day advice regarding deals, opportunities, and negotiation strategy involving relationships and arrangements with employees, vendors, customers, manufacturers, distributors, investors, partners, creditors, joint ventures, licensors, licensees, shareholders, and third parties.

The Devil’s in the details.

Other clients retain us for specific transactions, whether the need flows from taking advantage of a certain opportunity (e.g., documenting a significant transaction or selling some or all of their company) or a certain threat (e.g., protecting trade secrets, acquiring a competitor, or buying out a partner).

In all cases, we know our role and strive to deliver effective and efficient advice and services.
