ACM’s corporate-transactional attorneys bring to bear many years of legal and business experience to offer personalized, practical, value-added and cost-effective legal counsel to help individuals, executives, entrepreneurs and business entities identify, negotiate and resolve complicated business issues in corporate, media, entertainment, technology, financial and real-estate verticals.
Among other things, ACM’s corporate-transactional attorneys routinely handle mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic alliances, private equity and debt financings, film financings, intellectual property creation, registration, protection and licensing transactions, technology and on-line agreements, corporate formation and governance matters, employee benefits and executive compensation matters, board and investor relations and corporate, regulatory and securities compliance. ACM’s corporate-transactional attorneys also offer a broad range of general counsel and business advisory services to clients in all stages of the corporate life cycle, including many start-ups.
Whether handing a single transaction or acting in a general counsel capacity, ACM’s corporate-transactional attorneys always strive to add value on the business side of such transactions, as well as, providing solid legal counsel, to ensure that such transactions make good business and financial sense and advance corporate objectives overall, and yet, are accomplished on a cost-effective basis. ACM’s corporate-transactional attorneys take pride in being “deal” attorneys and closing deals, through careful assessment and presentation of risks, while not allowing technicalities to stand in the way of deals that make overall legal and financial sense.
In performing these services, ACM’s corporate-transactional attorneys routinely work with tax, employee benefits, intellectual property and environmental specialists (within and outside of ACM) to ensure that ACM’s clients receive sophisticated representation across a panoply of legal disciplines that is personalized, yet holistic in scope. ACM believes this approach helps ensure that its business clients always receive the comprehensive business and legal counsel that is required to achieve positive outcomes.
