We are experienced negotiators and litigators, a quality that lends itself to being your law firm for life. As master negotiators, we foster transactions and deals that benefit your business. On the other side, as skilled litigators, we are able to resolve legal disputes that arise in the business context.
Corporate contracts are legally binding agreements between two or more parties. Title 32 of the South Carolina Code sets forth the precise requirements of contracts and agents, and failure to adhere to these rules can render a contract unenforceable.
As corporate lawyers, we review, draft, and negotiate these contracts on behalf of our clients. We ensure that all lease agreements, high-dollar acquisitions, and employment contracts are handled with care, helping our clients avoid substandard agreements or legal pitfalls adverse to their interests.
Mergers and Acquisitions
The processes of merging with or acquiring another company can be highly complex, involving multiple financial transactions and extensive contractual negotiations. Our experienced corporate law attorneys can conduct due diligence in drafting and negotiating of mergers and acquisitions as well as oversee the deal-making process from start to finish.
Corporate Formation, Governance, and Operation
Not all corporations operate in the same way. We help our clients create, organize, or dissolve a business entity. Moreover, we work alongside our clients to establish a framework for how their business is managed and operated to ensure both legal and financial protections and security. This can include drafting articles of incorporation, forming bylaws, establishing corporate structure, and advising directors and officers on their rights and responsibilities.
Corporate securities are legally complex, and leverage a combination of state and federal law to prevent fraud, insider trading, and market manipulation. We help our clients adhere to the Securities Act of 1933 as well as the South Carolina Uniform Securities Act of 2005 to avoid securities errors and mitigate risk.
Corporate projects, both large and small scale, necessitate the involvement of many different entities. Often, substantial financial investments are at stake, and proper execution is vital. We have assisted our clients in forming project entities and legal entities that exist for the duration of the project. Furthermore, we are able to draft power purchase agreements, construction contracts, and negotiate optimal financial terms.
