SouthBank Legal’s Business Transactions and Finance team regularly advises clients on a variety of business transactions and corporate matters. Its lawyers combine large-firm experience with a practical, responsive, and cost-effective approach.

Led by an attorney who joined SouthBank Legal from an AmLaw 100 firm, SouthBank Legal assists clients with entity formation; corporate governance; succession planning and buy-sell agreements; mergers and acquisitions; joint venture, co-brand, and private label transactions; licensing and services agreements; and purchasing and fulfillment matters.

SouthBank Legal’s attorneys work closely with clients starting new companies to ensure they choose the proper structure for their business to provide adequate protection and the flexibility they need to grow. As the business grows, its attorneys identify and help solve a variety of legal challenges, including raising capital, protecting business assets, safeguarding intellectual property, negotiating services and fulfillment agreements, and handling employment matters.

SouthBank Legal also regularly represents lenders and borrowers in a broad range of secured and unsecured commercial lending transactions, including syndicated loan transactions; leveraged buyout financing; construction loan transactions; and distressed-loan forbearance, restructuring, and sales.


“SouthBank Legal’s attorneys have tremendous backgrounds--they could work anywhere in the country. But they choose SouthBank because of the culture. It is refreshing to work with attorneys who don’t seem pressured to get billable hours and obviously enjoy their work."
