Corporate Business Transactions

Fuerst Ittleman David & Joseph was founded with a focus on serving the legal needs of domestic and international businesses. Indeed, our clients range from start-ups and small businesses all the way up to Fortune 500 companies.

What these clients find when they come through our doors is a legal team that has the experience and resources to handle all of their business needs in an effective and efficient manner, and often at a fraction of what Wall Street or K Street law firms will charge. They find attorneys armed with the knowledge to address corporate formation and governance, mergers and acquisitions, contracts and business arrangements, both simple and highly complex. They also find professionals who answer their calls, respond to their emails, and take the time to understand their unique business needs and concerns. That is why so many of our clients have come to us from big firms to obtain legal services of top-flight quality that will not break the bank.

The attorneys and professionals of our corporate practice address the full range of legal issues that arise from the formation and operation of business entities.

From counseling start-ups and entrepreneurs to working with established companies seeking to expand into new markets, our attorneys not only possess extraordinary legal skills, but also the keen business acumen to ensure that your company will be a success.

We have formed myriad business entity types in both U.S. and foreign jurisdictions. Our corporate governance services include providing organizational documents (e.g., formational articles, operating agreements, bylaws) and board and equityholder resolutions, meeting minutes, etc. We also can provide agreements and other documentation for investors and equityholders as well as employment and consulting agreements for your personnel.

Corporate transactions provide opportunities for your company to grow into new markets or for your existing equityholders to cash out on their successful investments. Our corporate transaction practice has successfully completed mergers and acquisitions (M&A) for both domestic and international businesses in cross-border settings. In addition, we have helped businesses and individuals establish joint ventures and partnering arrangements in myriad industries. Our corporate attorneys are especially skilled in investments, financing and debt transactions to either bring new capital into a company or to restructure corporate finances to optimize its capital. Finally, when your company is nearing the end of its operations, Fuerst Ittleman David & Joseph can advise on restructuring, bankruptcy, liquidation, and dissolution strategies to ensure that your business affairs wind up in an orderly fashion.

Our corporate practice also provides exceptional support to your business’ contracting needs. We have negotiated, drafted, and executed a panoply of contracts in dozens of industries. From service agreements, to supplier and vendor arrangements, to distribution and franchising contracts, our experienced attorneys are especially adept at capturing your business needs in a manner that ensures you are protected from risks, yet can capitalize on the upsides that such contractual arrangements can bring. Moreover, we work with our tax, regulatory, and litigation practices to ensure that the full matrix of legal issues inherent in such contracts are effectively addressed.

If you are seeking legal service, quality, and attention to your needs that far exceed firms with hundreds of attorneys (and the high billable rates that such firms charge), contact Fuerst Ittleman David & Joseph today for a free initial consultation.
