Business Law

Our corporate and business clients range from start-ups to middle-market businesses. Their legal needs are varied – from business planning and formation to national and international corporate and tax issues, and everything in between. The depth and range of experience and expertise of our attorneys is as varied as the needs of our clients.

Our team includes former in-house general counsels from regional, national and international businesses, certified public accountants, attorneys with Masters in corporate, finance and tax law, former federal and state prosecutors, retired judges, and international and national corporate and tax lecturers. 

Porzio is a full-service law firm with the resources and expertise to meet the day-to-day business needs of our clients and to respond quickly and effectively to the unexpected.  We have particular expertise in dealing with COVID-19 issues and have written and lectured on related topics over the last year of the pandemic. Click here to go to our COVID-19 resource page.

Because the business law attorneys at Porzio have extensive general counsel expertise, we find that our clients often call upon us to act as their sole outside general counsel or to supplement a growing legal department. Porzio boasts a wide variety of practices with talented attorneys who work collaboratively to optimize legal services and provide depth and knowledge related to all areas of corporate governance and operations. 

In addition, our business law attorneys regularly provide third-party legal opinions to lenders, rating agencies, and other parties in business and loan transactions regarding entity formation and existence, authority, enforceability, non-consolidation, authority to file bankruptcy, UCC, and other matters, including Delaware third-party legal opinions. 

Our attorneys offer a unique team approach in assisting business entities and operations while not only providing corporate and tax advice for varied transactions but also collaborating with the employment, bankruptcy, wealth preservation, and commercial real estate and litigation teams to bring the best result for your business needs.
