Business Transactions

The corporate lawyers at F&E provide advice and counseling to businesses of all sizes to structure, negotiate and close transactions that support their operations, grow their enterprise, and improve their competitive position. Our clients’ overall business goals are always our primary focus and we bring a practical, results-oriented approach to transactional matters.

We also help guide them through the regulatory and legal compliance challenges they face as their business and workforce evolves.

Many of our business clients have been with us since the initial launch. We learn their opportunities and pain points, their goals and market position, and their process for finding and evaluating deals.

Several of F&E lawyers have served as officers and executives of commercial enterprises, and that background informs how we work.

Commercial Contracts
