BHF corporate attorneys are focused on the needs of emerging and established privately-held businesses. We regularly assist our clients with mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, debt and equity financings and complex corporate governance matters. We have particular expertise in complex domestic and international business and technology transactions, including distribution, reseller and supplier agreements, intellectual property licenses, technology development agreements, manufacturing arrangements and software licenses. Our experience in these matters allows us to provide not only sound legal advice, but also practical business counseling.
To meet the needs of owners of closely-held businesses, we leverage the experience of attorneys in the firm who specialize in employment, tax and estate planning services. We provide advice and counsel in matters ranging from business formation and choice of entities to the drafting of critical documents such as shareholder agreements, operating agreements, executive employment agreements, stock option plans and non-competition and non-disclosure agreements. Since we also represent many family-owned businesses, we frequently assist with succession planning and draft buy-sell arrangements that allow for an efficient transition of a business from one generation to the next.
