Corporate Law Group
The EVW Corporate Group brings a practical, results-oriented perspective to international corporate and business transactions. We represent companies of all sizes, ranging from entrepreneurs with start-ups and closely held family businesses to public companies and established privately-held businesses.
We counsel 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, 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.
We represent 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. We 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.
