Founded in 1979, the Firm has a substantial "Wall Street" practice advising brokers, investment advisers, pooled investment fund managers and investors on complex regulatory, compliance and tax issues pertaining to financial products and services, as well as representing them in regulatory investigations, arbitration or litigation. The Firm's practice also includes structuring and restructuring entities, financings, mergers, acquisitions and leveraged buy-outs and representing clients in general corporate matters, real estate, licensing and distribution agreements. The Firm's clients include lenders, borrowers, investors, developers, syndicators, buyers and sellers and the engagement runs from initial conception and analysis through structuring, negotiation, documentation and closing, including, but not limited to, sophisticated multi-national corporate transactions, multi-national, multi-currency financings, leasing and real estate exchanges.
Tax considerations are especially critical to our clients. The Firm has an extensive income, estate and gift tax-planning capability, with substantial experience in domestic and international estate planning and expertise in the use of trusts, family partnerships and limited liability companies.
The Firm's size and structure permit it to provide timely, superior service while permitting the partners and staff to engage in civic and charitable activities, an important aspect of an attorney's professional responsibility.
