Corporate

We advise businesses and entrepreneurs on a wide variety of corporate and commercial transactions. Our clients range from startups to investors to large multinational corporations. We understand that each of our client’s needs are different and require creative and cost-effective strategies that make sense for their unique challenges.

We listen, ask questions and think proactively.

We know that we cannot properly advise clients until we first understand their business and earn their trust and confidence. We are responsive. We frequently work on time-sensitive matters that require an extraordinary effort to meet deadlines. With our broad experience across many industries and many types of transactions, we are able to help our clients meet their business objectives while minimizing both short- and long-term risk.

We regularly advise international clients as well as U.S. companies involved in global projects. Our firm has represented companies and individuals based in the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Israel, South Africa, Japan, China, India and other countries. We have developed strong relationships with lawyers and accountants in many of these jurisdictions. Our office in Geneva allows us to conveniently serve our European clients.
