Mergers & Acquisitions

  • Transactions - We help clients buy and sell businesses; advising businesses of many sizes in a variety of transactions, including strategic acquisitions, venture capital financing, debt financing, bank workouts, business development, and other complex matters, as well as general business issues. Since 2003, we have assisted clients in asset and stock acquisitions, sales of businesses, and bank workouts totaling over $470,000,000.00

  • In-House Counsel - We serve as in-house counsel to growing business and affluent families, providing organization of all aspects of legal issues. We provide ongoing strategic business advice and counsel with a legal background to assist clients with their needs.

  • Intellectual Property / Trademarks - We protect the tangible and intangible property of our clients through trademark and copyright protection and other intellectual property advice, licensing agreements, confidentiality arrangements, independent contractor agreements, trade secret protection, due diligence reviews for complex acquisitions, and the like.

  • Corporate Formation - We work with entrepreneurial clients to establish corporations, LLCs, and other entities, securing personal and corporate liability protection.  We provide business strategies suited to each client's particular business goals.

  • Business Advice and Contracts - We advise clients through daily operational business concerns; including everyday employee/employer relationships, policy development, and complex strategic business succession.

  • Estate Planning & Asset Protection - We work with exceptionally affluent families, encouraging legacy planning opportunities within the context of each client's family situation, providing clients with comfort, security for the future. We work closely with family offices for such family and business clients.  We analyze and develop tax-efficient transfers of closely held businesses and other assets.

  • Collaboration - We offer an extensive network of professionals in the Atlanta area and beyond - with connections to attorneys and other trusted professionals who serve a variety of needs ranging from complex mergers and acquisitions to advanced litigation matters; intellectual property protection and legacy and wealth planning.

In-house. Outsourced.

Our dedication to our clients involves allying with proficient professionals in the areas important to our clients - investments, insurances, litigation, tax, regulation, and intellectual property, to name a few. This often means that we ‘quarterback’ various trusted advisors in the essential areas of our client’s business needs.

For these clients we often become a resource similar to an in-house counsel team — only streamlined and at a fraction of the cost.
