Clients don’t want to be over-lawyered. They deserve smart, dedicated attorneys who provide practical solutions to complex legal issues– in other words, full-service advisors with a businesslike approach.
Much Shelist business & finance attorneys represent a broad range of corporate clients, from public companies to privately held businesses, and from private equity funds to start-ups. We draw on our own experience as business owners and our broad network of business and financial contacts to serve our clients.
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 succession planning. Our attorneys frequently act as general counsel and advisors to companies, advising on everything from routine matters to transformative business events.
