Business Transactions

SBSB’s Business Transactions Practice Group provides full service counsel to public and privately held U.S. and foreign clients, ranging from start-up entrepreneurs to large multi-national corporations. Our services cover the wide range of challenges and opportunities clients encounter throughout the business life cycle, from formation to mergers and acquisitions, daily operations to protecting intellectual property, raising capital to securities law compliance, and corporate governance to international ventures and tax management. Businesses want legal counsel who not only have broad experience and skills, but who also have financial and practical business applications experience.

SBSB attorneys have worked with clients doing business in virtually every region of the globe and have experience in diverse sectors like the energy, logistics, maritime, manufacturing, engineering and defense industries.

These strengths relate to not only mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, but also to cross border business transactions; licensing and sales; international franchise, distributorship and sales representative arrangements; employment agreements; and corporate governance and compliance.

In the M&A area, we structure, negotiate, and close transactions for buyers, sellers and related parties, such as venture capital firms, private equity groups and institutional investors.

Our attorneys have worked with clients to create standardized contracts and terms and conditions to stream line their contracting and procurement processes, as well as employee handbooks and company policies and other useful tools such as decision-making matrixes that meet their styles, needs and philosophies. We have learned what works and know how to manage this efficiently and within the client’s budget.

SBSB attorneys tailor their approach to structuring and negotiating transactions to each client’s distinctive requirements. In each unique situation, we assess the client’s position in the marketplace, objectives and risk tolerance to develop innovative strategies and structures that keep transactions moving and on track. We understand when to advocate a position and when to recommend a compromise solution to guarantee deals close efficiently without jeopardizing the client’s end goal.

SBSB attorneys are ready to help with all your business transactional needs.
