Corporate finance matters extend to more than just banks and financial situations. Corporate finance is unavoidable for both large and small businesses because they all want to increase the business’s value to shareholders or owners. At the same time, the business must also adhere to applicable laws and regulations. This can be a tricky balancing act, but you do not have to do it alone. The Financial Services Practice Group at Carnahan, Evans, Cantwell & Brown handles a wide range of corporate finance issues, and we can help develop a plan that works for your business goals.
Corporate Finance Matters Explained
A business’s financing plan is extremely unique to each business type. From a legal perspective, this area is not only tricky because of the individuality of each business, but also because lawyers, like market analysts and stockbrokers, have to monitor the financial market to help their clients know when to take specific action. Observing market conditions is crucial to be able to suggest certain financial structures to clients. In addition, financial regulations change frequently, and savvy businesses need legal representation that not only stays up to date on market changes, but also knows and understands the latest corporate finance laws. Securities and other finance-related laws are complicated, and it takes a specialized attorney to really know the ins and outs of this type of law.
Our finance team has dealt with a wide range of financial transactions and disputes. The following is just a sample of our previous work:
- Structuring complex commercial credit facilities
- Structuring debt between parent and subsidiary entities
- Loans to business entities from principals
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Negotiation and documentation of deal terms
- Public and private acquisition of capital
- Tax implications of financial transactions
- Employment implications of financial transactions
- Acquisitions involving financial and professional service companies
We have also dealt with asset-secured financing arrangements in depth. This includes making financial arrangements based on real estate, securities, intellectual property rights, inventory, and equipment. In addition, we take pride in providing our clients with continuing guidance about best practices to monitor collateral. We also suggest and help our clients implement specific practices to minimize the risk of fraud. CECB can serve as a standing legal advisor to businesses large and small to be sure that they are meeting all of their legal obligations regarding corporate finance matters.
The financial sector has continuing reporting requirements under laws like the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. This is a multifaceted law, and many business owners do not even know where to start to meet their requirements. Our firm can help businesses develop the needed policies to continually meet these obligations. We can also help with other securities law compliance from securities registration requirements to insider trader issues and “troubled company” disclosure requirements.
Professional, sophisticated services performed in a client-friendly and cost-efficient manner are what separate CECB from other law firms. We offer exceptional service that can ease your concerns about whether your business is complying with applicable financial laws.
