MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS
We participate in all aspects of structuring and negotiating simple and complex transactions, including leveraged and management buyouts, recapitalizations and reorganizations. Our attorneys’ experience in areas such as regulatory compliance, taxation, real estate and securities law is particularly helpful in these transactions.
FINANCE & SECURITIES
We frequently represent entrepreneurs, buyers and investors in forming, financing and expanding new or developing enterprises. Clark & Trevithick handles financings involving both equity and debt securities ranging from private investor “seed” capital to multimillion dollar offerings, venture capital financing or credit facilities from financial institutions. We advise clients with respect to their disclosure obligations under federal and state securities laws and administrative rules and regulations.
COMMERCIAL LAW & INSOLVENCY
Our lawyers have extensive experience in both formal (in court) and informal (out of court) restructuring representation including secured lenders, lessors and buyers, as well as borrowers and debtors in possession.
FORMATION OF EMERGING AND FAMILY OWNED COMPANIES
Developing businesses often require our attorneys to extend their involvement beyond the traditional role of corporate lawyer. Our attorneys are well versed in working with companies from start-up organizations to mature entities with established identities and income streams. Clark & Trevithick provides ongoing representation of emerging and family owned companies. Our business attorneys assist in creating option, incentive and other varied compensation plans. We also advise clients with respect to buy-sell and succession planning documents and board of director and advisory and other committee roles and responsibilities.
The firm’s real estate attorneys provide skillful representation in complex real estate transactions including acquisitions and dispositions, leasing, financing and development. Clark & Trevithick’s real estate team has had extensive experience representing developers, investors, buyers, sellers, lenders, architects, contractors, engineers, brokers, landlords and tenants in connection with every conceivable type of real estate asset, including raw land, retail, office, industrial, residential, marinas, and hotel and resort projects.
PARTNERSHIP DISPUTES & RESOLUTION
The firm has been involved in a number of partnership/joint venture disputes/closely held corporation disputes involving real estate partnerships and joint ventures, law firm partnerships and closely held businesses. The firm’s business expertise is particularly useful in attempting to resolve these types of disputes without litigation or, alternatively, in mediation or arbitration. However, when necessary, the firm’s litigation capability is available to handle these situations which cannot be resolved on a negotiated or less formal dispute resolution basis.
