Business & Corporate
In South Florida’s challenging economic environment, clients need legal counsel that responds quickly and effectively to a broad range of problems and circumstances; our firm assists a broad spectrum of companies, small businesses and individuals in meeting these challenges. The attorneys in our Business & Corporate practice group have represented private and public companies and individuals in a multitude of transactions in the U.S. and throughout the world. They have helped businesses throughout their “life cycle” (i.e., from raising capital to the eventual sale or merger of a successful start-up at a premium with a larger company). Their experience ranges from structuring offshore investment in the U.S., whether through start ups, joint ventures or other business combinations, to the day to day operations of a going concern, including distribution, licensing, leasing, government procurement and employment issues. We develop and cultivate in all our relationships an appreciation for the business realities experienced by our clients and respond quickly, nimbly and effectively to today’s diverse legal and business environment.
Due to its strategic position in South Florida and long-standing and strong ties to the community, our firm is exceptionally well placed to serve clients with both inbound and outbound international legal and business needs. Our firm’s attorneys are well versed with the intricacies of legal and business regimes throughout the world, with a special emphasis on servicing client needs throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe. Well established strategic alliances with counselors throughout the world make the provision of our international legal services to our clients well integrated and seamless.
The firm has extensive experience in international financial transactions, including starting up, growing, buying and selling business operations, import-export and other trade matters, foreign investments in the United States as well as investments in foreign countries, offshore trusts and business entities.
Our firm handles all aspects of the establishment of subsidiaries or affiliated businesses of foreign companies in the United States and United States companies abroad, from founding to operation, from idea to reality.
