Business & Finance

Clients don’t want to be over-lawyered. They deserve smart, dedicated attorneys who provide practical solutions to sophisticated legal issues – in other words, full-service advisors with a businesslike approach to the practice of law. 

Much Shelist business & finance attorneys represent a broad range of corporate clients, from public companies to private equity funds to privately held businesses and start-ups.  We draw on our own experience as business owners, our extensive knowledge of the law, and our broad network of business and financial contacts to serve as our client’s business partners in the very best sense.

We provide a full range of legal counsel. We counsel clients in connection with the execution of growth strategies, whether through acquisition or otherwise; assist private equity groups with the addition and disposition of portfolio companies; counsel emerging growth companies in choosing the appropriate form of entity or obtaining early stage and growth financing. 

We help clients address ongoing business demands, including day-to-day operations and fiscal management, and work with them to identify and leverage emerging opportunities. As businesses mature, we provide guidance on appropriate exit strategies and business succession planning. Our attorneys frequently act as general counsel and advisors to companies, handling both routine matters and significant transactions.
