Business & Corporate Law

Our client's long-term business goals are just as important as their immediate transaction needs. Bullivant Houser Bailey has responded by bringing together a highly experienced group of transaction attorneys who act as long-term, trusted business advisors to our clients. We focus on using our legal and business expertise to help you anticipate and respond to current and future needs. Many clients have demonstrated their trust in our representation through ongoing relationships that span many years and many individual attorneys.

Because Bullivant has a strong litigation practice, our trial experience gives us a 360° perspective on our transaction work. We provide counsel with litigation and claims avoidance techniques in mind. Our clients value our advice because it keeps them out of court.

Our attorneys work with clients on:

Mergers & Acquisitions
We handle mergers and acquisitions involving closely held entities and venture capital-backed corporations. Because a merger or acquisition is about much more than a contract, we take an interdisciplinary approach to the deal. We are able to bring in crucial team members to assist on critical aspects of the transaction. These may include the firm's employment, ERISA/employee benefits, real estate, environmental, tax, products liability, and intellectual property lawyers and others.

Creditors' Rights
Our attorneys are skilled in all areas of creditors' rights. Bullivant clients include various financial institutions, insurance companies, leasing and finance companies, and other entities interested in preserving and enforcing their rights as creditors. Our attorneys routinely advise creditors regarding their rights and remedies under the Uniform Commercial Code, foreclosures and other types of recovery of real and personal property, secured transactions, and other areas of commercial law.

Corporate Growth & Governance
Bullivant Houser Bailey has established a significant track record assisting companies in establishing and operating business entities, from family-owned operations to mid-tier growth companies. Our attorneys routinely counsel clients on the responsibilities of corporations, management, boards of directors, and special committees of boards of directors under federal and state laws. Our experience with corporate law enables us to recommend corporate structures and strategies and advise clients on day-to-day corporate law matters, as well as matters involving shareholder initiatives, governance issues under SEC rules and regulations and related Sarbanes-Oxley matters.
