Practice/Industry Group Overview
Our Corporate and Securities law services range from basic corporate formation to sophisticated mergers and acquisitions and leveraged capital transactions. Hinman, Howard & Kattell advises a wide variety of business entities, both public and private, large and small.
Our Corporate and Securities Law attorneys have structured, negotiated, and closed numerous acquisitions and divestitures through outright stock or asset sales, mergers, leveraged buyouts and strategic alliances. Often these transactions involve complex and multi-disciplinary legal issues such as taxation, intellectual property, environmental law, real estate law, labor and employee benefit law, and other similar issues. Our Corporate and Securities team works side-by-side with other lawyers within our firm who specialize in these areas to achieve the best results for our clients.
In addition, the Corporate and Securities Law department has experience in securities offerings and regulatory compliance. For example, we have assisted our clients in initial, secondary and private offerings, compliance with broker-dealer regulations, and investment capital infusions. We also advise clients on recent securities law developments and assist them with reporting, disclosure, and compliance requirements under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The lawyers of the Corporate and Securities Law practice group have incorporated, organized, and counseled thousands of corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies. Further, our lawyers are experienced in advising not-for-profit corporations concerning corporate formation, filing for exemptions with state and federal taxing agencies, and general day-to-day operations. A number of our lawyers advise our clients’ boards of directors and are intimately familiar with the issues surrounding state and federal law regarding corporate governance and fiduciary issues.
