Experienced Legal Representation for Companies of All Sizes At All Stages of the Business Lifecycle
All businesses need experienced legal counsel. Every step in the business lifecycle requires informed decision-making, from establishing new business entities and securing financing to managing securities law compliance and selling the company. While company owners and executives can make strategic business decisions independently, they must rely on the advice of their counsel to address issues with legal implications.
These issues run the gamut from liability risks to statutory and regulatory compliance. At Shin Law Firm, we help company owners and executives make informed decisions about these issues every step of the way. Our lawyers have worked with companies in a broad range of industries, and we bring decades of relevant experience to the table.
Our Business and Corporate Law Practice
Within our business and corporate law practice, we offer a comprehensive suite of services for clients ranging from start-up technology ventures to large companies with multiple locations across the United States and around the world. These services include:
Business Advisory Services
Our business advisory services include everything from assisting with forming new businesses to consulting with executives and boards of directors on high-level corporate decisions. Some representative examples of our services in this area are:
- Business entity selection and formation
- Business entity ownership and management structuring
- General contract drafting and negotiation
- Risk assessments and risk management counseling
- Evaluating potential liability and other legal considerations related to proposed business operations or transactions
Along with providing advice in the corporate realm, we are able to advise our business clients in other areas as well, including advising clients with real estate transactions and with regard to corporate tax planning and compliance.
Business Succession Planning
For business owners, succession planning is critical. If you can no longer run your business, you will need someone else to step in and take control. We provide business succession planning services within our broader estate planning practice, and we have extensive experience advising business owners on how to protect the companies they have spent their lives building into thriving enterprises.
Similar to other aspects of estate planning, it is never too early to implement a business succession plan. But it can be too late. We help our clients ensure that their companies—and their successors—are prepared to keep moving forward when the time comes.
Mergers and Acquisitions
We represent buyers and sellers in corporate mergers and acquisitions involving business entities of all sizes. For sellers, we provide advice and representation throughout the process, from obtaining an appropriate business valuation to negotiating the stock purchase agreement or asset purchase agreement. For buyers, we also provide full-service legal representation, assisting with due diligence, contract negotiations, third-party assignments, closing, and post-closing matters.
State and federal securities laws apply to both private and public companies. While public companies have extensive accounting, recordkeeping, and disclosure requirements, private companies must be careful to ensure that their funding arrangements and growth efforts do not trigger securities registration requirements. Our lawyers advise private and public companies on all securities law matters—including registering with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and qualifying for registration exemptions when necessary.
Asset-based lending is a uniquely complex area of the law. Asset-backed securitizations (ABS) and other asset-based lending structures entail a host of legal issues, and they present a multitude of legal risks as well. We represent asset-based lenders in all aspects of compliance, risk management, and transactional operations and advise borrowers during their contract negotiations.
Structured finance transactions can implicate various aspects of the law, and executing these transactions successfully requires an informed, insightful, and detail-oriented approach. From addressing the securities law implications to helping our clients avoid unnecessary tax liability, we rely on our significant experience in this area to guide our clients forward. We represent both lenders and borrowers, and in addition to drafting and negotiating contracts for complex structured finance arrangements, we are able to help our clients explore novel and creative alternative financing solutions as necessary.
How Can We Help Your Company?
Whether you need help with a specific issue or your company needs general counsel but doesn’t have the budget for a full-time hire, we can offer a custom-tailored and cost-effective solution. Our lawyers routinely work with companies of all sizes in the following capacities:
- Engagement for a Specific Transaction or Event – We help company founders establish new corporations and limited liability companies, advise companies during lending transactions and bankruptcies, and provide representation for buyers and sellers in corporate M&A deals.
- Ongoing Representation in a Particular Area – We provide ongoing representation for many clients in specific areas such as securities law compliance, asset-based lending, and structured finance.
- Full-Service Representation as Outside General Counsel – We also serve as outside general counsel for many of our clients.
