Maynard Cooper’s full-service legal practice affords all of our attorneys expedient access to a broad range and depth of legal expertise. The firm’s corporate attorneys advise clients on all aspects of transactions, and they often call on their partners who concentrate in other specialty areas of the law to provide the full-service that every client expects and deserves. The teams we assemble to handle matters can be as broad, or as limited, as a client’s needs or preferences require. Our team approach allows us to formulate creative solutions to effectively resolve the issues that regularly arise in transactions, including concerns related to federal and state taxes, financing, employee benefits, intellectual property, state corporate laws, federal and state securities laws, labor and employment, real estate, environmental, antitrust, government contracting, and trade regulation. Throughout each phase of the transaction, our attorneys work closely with our clients to effectively and efficiently help them achieve their business goals.
