Our attorneys' extensive corporate experience covers the countless issues and situations that arise in connection with the formation, operation, transition, or ultimate sale of a business. In connection with each of these stages, the Firm provides advice to its clients on the potential tax implications and possible deferrals, as well as obligations and indemnifications that may survive the transaction at hand and the benefits and restrictions for any assets received. In addition, Lemery Greisler assists its business clients in obtaining capital and operating financing—from initial start-up acquisitions or venture-capital financing, to mezzanine financing for the growing and expanding business, to long-term commercial financing for the client with a developed business. To assist in the provision of needed capital and provide clients with a connection to successful and competitive outside organizations, our attorneys have developed relationships with venture capital companies, mezzanine financing companies, and lenders.

The Firm's securities practice works together with the corporate and partnership practice and the municipal finance practice. In the corporate and partnership practice, attorneys advise clients with respect to securities law implications of mergers and acquisitions, and other transactions. In the securities practice, attorneys supervise, document, and assist clients with a variety of public and private placements—as underwriter's counsel, as investor's counsel, and as company's counsel.
