Corporate Law

The DeCotiis Corporate Law Practice Group represents closely-held and private corporations as well as public/private joint venture partnerships in transactional and corporate governance matters. Effective, knowledgeable and proactive counsel in corporate matters helps clients minimize risk, uncertainty and liability. It also insures that their business entities are structured and operated in the most strategically advantageous manner possible. Our objective is to help our clients anticipate and avoid potential problems, from potential litigation to tax problems.

The practice group has particularly extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions, as well as reorganizations, corporate restructuring, leveraged buyouts, divestitures and both public and private finance. We also provide assistance with the formation and choice of corporate entities, and analysis of tax strategies. Our industry expertise includes financial services, banking, real estate, manufacturing and distribution, insurance, healthcare, service entities and governmental entities.

We also have substantial experience dealing with compliance and corporate governance matters. We assist clients to interpret regulations and corporate documentation, maintain transparency, avoid conflicts of interests and comply with whistleblower requirements. We have represented both venture firms and portfolio companies in venture finance transactions, addressing issues such as private placements of securities, allocation of board seats and distribution of both preferred and common stock.

DeCotiis is a leader in representing both private and governmental parties in connection with the privatization of government entities, the formation of strategic alliances with public/private entities, and assisting business enterprises at all levels of government. We serve as General Counsel to a number of our clients, both public and private, including some of New Jersey’s largest real estate and commercial developers and public authorities. In this capacity, the practice group provides general counseling and business advisory services to corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships, nonprofit corporations and private foundations.

Utilizing a combination of experience, skill and legal knowledge, the DeCotiis Corporate Practice Group is an invaluable partner and innovative, clear-sighted advisor to all kinds of enterprises. We allow our clients to focus on what really matters – running their business.
