Corporate

Seyfarth Shaw attorneys possess the broad, in-depth experience necessary to serve a diverse client base, ranging from start-up ventures to middle market companies to large multinational corporations. 

We carefully guide clients through myriad legal issues and offer guidance on key decisions that determine long-term success in today’s highly competitive, high-speed business environment.  Since corporate matters frequently involve aspects of many legal disciplines, our corporate attorneys regularly draw on the resources of Seyfarth’s other practice areas such as employee benefits, intellectual property, labor and employment, real estate, environmental and bankruptcy to deliver coordinated, seamless service to our clients.  In this way, our clients receive full attention from dedicated, focused business attorneys, as well as reap the benefits of a full-service law firm.

Our skills and commitment to service span many industries including consumer products, distribution, e-commerce, energy, financial services, health care, information technology, insurance, manufacturing, media, pharmaceuticals, professional services, retail, technology, telecommunications and transportation. We focus our corporate practice in areas such as mergers and acquisitions, securities, investment management, corporate counseling, commercial transactions, financing, international business and tax planning.

From publicly traded corporations to family-owned businesses, companies of all sizes seek commercial stability and growth in an increasingly demanding environment.  Increased regulation and competition, and the globalization of doing business, create additional challenges and complications in the day-to-day operations of a business.  New corporate governance regulations have brought about significant change in how business is conducted, and technology continues to accelerate the pace of transactions and the need for information.  Companies seek trusted counsel upon whom they can rely not only in a crisis or during a difficult transition, but on an everyday basis and in future planning. They need a reliable adviser who understands not only their industry and the laws governing their businesses but also their goals and how best to achieve them.
