Corporate Finance and Restructuring
Glaser Weil’s Corporate attorneys are well versed in the area of corporate finance. Whether to finance an M&A transaction, or a company’s ongoing operations and expansions, our lawyers have structured and negotiated all forms of finance. Equally adept in dealing with large lending syndicates and single financing sources, our attorneys have the experience necessary to negotiate and secure for our clients their needed financing upon terms that allow businesses to grow and operations to flourish. Unfortunately, when the nation’s economy is hurting, there can be the need for a company to restructure its finances. Our lawyers have worked on some of the largest restructurings seen in the most recent economic downturn, allowing companies to continue to operate, offer their employees continued employment and their shareholders continued value. We know how to manage and oversee both the variety of specialists needed on complex restructurings, as well as address the issues that arise.
We offer clients a full range of legal services pertaining to alternative investment transactions and emerging company/venture capital issues. Glaser Weil has generally focused on the representation of institutional investors in the formation of investment funds and co-investments. We have also aided investment funds and other investors in acquiring their stake in portfolio companies and counseled clients in virtually all aspects of "alternative investment" transactions, as well as advised issuers and other financial intermediaries in structuring and executing a broad range of securities transactions.
Our Corporate attorneys help our clients navigate such vital corporate governance issues as shareholder matters and executive compensation. We have counseled both companies and shareholders in the preparation of shareholder agreements and employers and employees in the preparation of employment agreements. We have counseled boards of directors as to their fiduciary duties and have worked with company management in connection with the day-to-day activities of our clients.
Partnerships / Limited Liability Companies
Our Corporate attorneys have extensive experience in the formation of joint ventures and strategic alliances that foster the development of key business goals and relationships for our clients. Whether dealing with a family business or a strategic alliance between public companies, our corporate attorneys are able to develop effective structures for long-term relationships. We counsel clients so that they may balance the tax, liability and business issues of all parties to achieve the most favorable results for the companies we represent.
We have represented many clients in the formation of limited liability companies and partnerships, including real estate investors and institutional investors.
