Business Transactions

Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger LLP has a long history of advising clients on myriad complex business transactions.

Our clients include technology companies, real estate developers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers, professional service firms, publishers, financial institutions, private funds, investment advisers, family offices, and not-for-profit foundations.  These clients range from start-ups and development stage companies to mature businesses enjoying many decades in business.  Our clients consistently turn to us for legal counsel because of our history of providing targeted advice that addresses key concerns and our ability to successfully close transactions.  We bring to each engagement legal expertise, practical guidance, and experienced business judgment.

Our Transactional Business attorneys collaborate with attorneys in other practice areas providing an integrated approach in reaching our clients’ goals.  Tax planning plays a critical role in a large percentage of business transactions, so we commonly involve our tax attorneys to develop tax-efficient strategies from the outset. The experience of our litigation and restructuring attorneys helps us to anticipate issues and evaluate risks for our clients in negotiating and structuring business transactions.  Our estate planning attorneys bring to bear their skills, experience, and judgment in business succession planning.  This team approach ensures our clients receive the attention, perspective, and understanding necessary to achieve results that address all aspects of a particular transaction.

Our Transactional Business practice focuses on five key areas: corporate & business transactions; business finance and capital investment; mergers & acquisitions; business succession planning; and information technology consulting.
