Corporate & Securities Law Group
The Eaton & Van Winkle Corporate & Securities Law Practice Group brings a practical, results-oriented perspective to business law. Our attorneys represent companies of all sizes, ranging from entrepreneurs with start-up businesses and closely held family businesses to public companies and established privately-held businesses.
EVW counsels clients on a variety of corporate, securities and commercial matters, including those related to routine operating issues as well as more complex tax-driven transactions requiring specialized services. The corporate practice focuses heavily on strategic deals including mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures as well as intergenerational transfers and succession planning. We will recommend the appropriate form of business organization to clients starting a new business venture, whether it be a limited liability company, corporation or partnership and prepare and negotiate shareholder, partnership and operating agreements.
For those in need of an international corporate lawyer, EVWrepresents domestic and foreign entities in negotiating and structuring a wide variety of financial and strategic M&A and divestiture transactions, with an emphasis on structuring, negotiating and consummating the transaction.
In connection with mergers and acquisitions transactions, we also provide advice to boards of directors, board committees (including special committees), senior management and shareholders on a wide range of related corporate governance matters, including anti-takeover defenses and proxy contests. In representing the acquirer, we conduct due diligence reviews of the target’s contractual obligations, liabilities and other commitments and advise our client of the material risks of the transaction.
