Experienced corporate attorneys helping businesses achieve their most challenging goals

Farrell Fritz advises middle-market businesses as well as companies in all stages of development, from start-ups and early stage companies to large private and publicly held companies, in a wide variety of industries throughout the U.S. and abroad. Our services include entity formation, capital raising, mergers and acquisitions, strategic alliances, shareholder agreements, contract review including licensing, manufacturing and distribution agreements and corporate governance. We routinely work with attorneys in our tax, real estate, litigation, restructuring and land use groups to complement and enhance our ability to provide unparalleled corporate counsel.

Mergers & Acquisitions of All Sizes

Our attorneys regularly advise clients on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, leveraged buyouts, asset sales, structuring of spin-offs, and other divestitures. We counsel purchasers and sellers in all transactions—from small, local acquisitions to multistate, multimillion-dollar transactions. In addition, we counsel clients on business entity formation. In connection with any such transactions, we advise our clients not only on the corporate law issues, but also on tax considerations and other relevant issues.

Corporate Governance Best Practices

Directors, officers, and board members of public, private, nonprofit, and municipal entities seek our counsel regarding best practices and various corporate governance issues. The firm’s interdisciplinary team consists of attorneys from a broad spectrum of practice areas. Clients receive integrated, tailored advice on the specific challenges they face, whether these are related to board composition and structure, director and officer fiduciary duties, strategic transactions, day-to-day operations, codes of ethics, disclosure requirements, regulatory or internal investigations, forensic audits, insurance matters, litigation, suspected or actual misconduct, or myriad other issues.
