The Corporate & Business Practice is one of the largest at Scheef & Stone, LLP, and serves as a cornerstone for the firm and the clients we successfully represent in the United States and overseas – in industries ranging from construction, distribution, energy, and manufacturing, to retail, restaurants, software, and technology.
Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the complex and ever-changing legal and regulatory environment in which our clients operate, and can design or adjust governance practices to match the most current standards.
Access to capital is the life blood of virtually every type of business, and our lawyers represent parties on all sides of the table, from early stage negotiations, to designing a workable debt or equity structure, to financing. Our finance professionals have extensive experience in closing debt and equity financing transactions for financial institutions, as well as for corporate borrowers and private equity sponsors.
We help our clients build a sound contract infrastructure that meets business founders’ tax and business objectives while striking a balance between risk, reward, and control. This encompasses coordinating business, tax and estate planning, entity selection, and structuring alternatives. We regularly handle and will often orchestrate settlement of shareholder disputes, board disputes and deadlock, as well as executive compensation matters – and when needed, we are highly experienced in “corporate divorces” and the related court proceedings.
