Business Transactions Group Year-End Transactions

The Halloran & Sage Business Transactions Group, led by partners Robert Cox and James Maher, has further cemented its status as a leader in the Greater Hartford and Greater New Haven business communities through its efficient and expert execution of an unprecedented level of diverse and complex transactions at the end of 2012.

Bob and Jim worked closely with associates Jaimee Newman, Matthew Teich and Casey O'Connell, along with legal assistants Karel Ortolani and Olivia Albanese, to close over twenty corporate and commercial transactions in December, 2012, showcasing the Halloran & Sage Business Group's proven ability to meet aggressive deadlines and produce high quality work for clients while matching up with other leading regional and national law firms. The buzz surrounding the Group's 2012 success has the firm and its business clients excited to tackle the numerous new projects that are already underway in 2013.

The diversity of the Halloran & Sage Business Group's 2012 year-end transactions, along with the sheer volume of closings, illustrates the Group's capacity to effectively represent its clients' varied needs. These transactions included business and real estate acquisitions and divestitures, strategic alliance agreements, stock redemptions, a medical office building/cancer center development, tax-driven mergers and dissolutions, business and acquisition financing, health care financing, corporate financing and loan restructures, corporate governance/gifting matters and incentive compensation/employment matters.

Bob and Jim believe that the rising profile of the Halloran & Sage Business Group in both Hartford and New Haven is being defined as the Group closes out 2012 and begins to tackle new challenges in 2013. The Group is thankful to be thriving in this challenging environment and believes that its clients are sensing a building momentum. While the strength of the corporate and commercial market remains uncertain, the volume and diversity of the Halloran & Sage Business Group's year-end transactions is a testament to its clients' belief and reliance on the professionalism and responsiveness of the Group to provide the services they need when they need them.

Business Transactions Group members have increased their involvement in major business organizations, including both the MetroHartford Alliance and the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce. As a Strategic Partner level-member at the MetroHartford Alliance, they are keeping abreast of economic developments in the Hartford region and also participating in the newly launched Connecticut Health Council. In New Haven, they are participating in the New Haven Chamber sponsored Regional Leadership Council which addresses the major economic and legislative issues in the region. Halloran & Sage is also pleased to be involved in a new statewide program co-sponsored by The Hartford Business Journal and the CBIA which will honor family owned businesses later this year.H & S Sponsor of the New Haven Road Race
