We can help you make the most of your business transactions.

SouthBank regularly advises clients on a variety of business transactions and corporate matters. We combine large-firm experience with a practical, responsive, and cost-effective approach to help our clients accomplish their goals, including advising on:

  • Entity formation
  • Corporate governance
  • Succession planning and buy-sell agreements
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Joint venture, co-brand, and private label transactions

Experienced legal counsel for start-ups and new ventures.

When starting a new business, it is vital to invest in quality legal counsel. We work closely with clients who are starting new companies to ensure they choose the proper structure for their business to provide adequate protection and give them the flexibility they need to grow. As the business grows, we identify and help solve a variety of legal challenges, including:

  • Raising capital
  • Protecting business assets
  • Safeguarding intellectual property
  • Negotiating services and fulfillment agreements
  • Drafting employment contracts and restrictive covenants
  • Complying with federal, state, and local employment laws

Unfortunately, many people overlook these concerns in the excitement of starting a new venture. We also realize that legal services are an additional expense for those who don’t have unlimited funding to start their new business. For these reasons, we strive to provide a cost-effective investment in our clients’ futures—we’re here to help your new business succeed.

Legal representation for the entire lifespan of your business.

We also work with established businesses to help them with any needs that arise. This includes day-to-day operational issues such as employment matters and contract issues, real estate transactions, and intellectual property issues. We also work with clients considering acquiring other businesses or selling their entity to prospective buyers. No matter your needs, our team of seasoned business attorneys can help you achieve your business goals.
