Corporate & Commercial Transactions

Whether you’re starting a new business or ready to expand or sell your business, having a trusted legal advisor by your side is essential. The corporate attorneys at Capell Barnett Matalon & Schoenfeld are here to help you navigate the different stages of your corporate and commercial transactions.

When designing a new business, selecting the appropriate corporate entity to suit your enterprise is a fundamental decision with significant consequences. Our attorneys will help you select the structure to best meet your venture’s needs and will discuss the collateral issues of such decision including the simple cost of establishing a business entity, the cost and complexities of annual maintenance, the related tax consequences and the requirements and restrictions set forth by state and federal laws affecting your choice.

Our attorneys will advise you on how to minimize business income taxes, take advantage of company losses, protect business equity, avoid personal liability, transfer assets, identify flexible structures for future transfers of ownership interests, suggest preferable equity ownership and capital financing arrangements, and recognize local law reporting complexities that might be applicable to your business.

Once your business is up and running, our corporate attorneys will help you draft, negotiate and review all business-related legal documents such as service contracts, lease agreements, shareholder agreements, stock sale agreements, asset purchase agreements, operating contracts and any other agreements required to move your company forward.

When the time comes to expand or sell your business, our experienced attorneys will be there to suggest the best vehicle for your transactions, negotiate and draft deal memoranda, conduct due diligence, and resolving any and all sales, merger or acquisition agreement challenges.
