We help you fulfill your business goals.
The Business Entities, Transactions and Financing Practice Area attorneys at The McCullough Group serve as effective counselors and assistants to business owners and entrepreneurs as they form and build businesses, large or small. We can assist in all business transactions – initial formation through funding, business contract documentation, ownership succession and business acquisition and disposition.
We help you to weather your challenges and maximize your opportunities. Being a successful business owner requires expert advice, guided planning, and essential documentation. We help you anticipate, plan for, and resolve issues with partners, employees, and customers, while ensuring that you protect your wealth. We can help you structure and obtain financing for your business, including project finance, debt transactions, private equity and venture capital transactions. When it is time to acquire another business or sell your own, our merger and acquisition experts are ready to help.
Entity Formation, Transformation and Governance
From the day you first open for business to the day your business is listed on a major stock exchange, operating as an entity is essential to protect your personal assets. We can help you structure corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies, and we can help you understand the related corporate tax and estate planning issues. We also enable you to anticipate and resolve issues with your partners, employees and customers and plan for those issues in bylaws, shareholder agreements, operating agreements, employment contracts and marketing, distribution and service agreements.
Whether it is a license, joint venture, distributorship, sale of goods or other complex transaction, you know the business terms you want. We can achieve those terms in your negotiations, identify the likely “what if” scenarios for your consideration, document the agreed upon terms to avoid future disputes and help you avoid the contractual minefields and traps proposed by the other side.
The advice of expert legal counsel is essential in structuring and procuring financing for your business. We can advise both borrowers and lenders in public and private debt transactions, as well as equity and venture capital transactions. We also assist underwriters, developers, lenders, operators and service recipients in a wide variety of project finance transactions.
Mergers and Acquisitions
Buying, selling or merging a company is a complex task that merits a team of experts to work on your behalf. Let us use our broad experience to help you realize your goals through the structuring of asset sales or purchases, stock sales or purchases, recapitalizations, mergers and spin-offs.
Securities issues are complex and can be a significant hurdle to you as an entrepreneur. We can guide you through the layers of state and federal regulations that apply to the offering of securities. We represent issuers in public and private securities offerings and financing involving common stock, preferred stock, limited partnership interests, limited liability company interests, bonds and debentures.
