McCarthy Duffy LLP’s Corporate and Transactions Practice provides experienced legal support for companies, investors, and executives engaged in a broad range of corporate activities and transactions. We bring solid transaction management skills and the ability to integrate numerous practice disciplines to navigate the complexities of a corporate transaction to achieve a successful closing.

McCarthy Duffy’s Corporate and Transactions Practice Group brings a breadth of experience to the management of stock and asset acquisitions, leveraged and management buyouts, mergers and other corporate consolidations, sales and divestitures, partnerships, joint ventures and strategic alliances, licensing transactions, and restructurings. In addition to our in-depth corporate, securities, and transactional capabilities, our commercial lending and finance, real estate, tax, and general regulatory capabilities give McCarthy Duffy the ability to bring an interdisciplinary approach to each transaction.

Several McCarthy Duffy attorneys have served as small business owners, operators, and executives or have been investors in these types of businesses. This background gives McCarthy Duffy a unique perspective on the needs and interests of privately-held clients approaching strategic transactions.

Many clients engaging McCarthy Duffy’s Corporate and Transactions Practice Group are companies, executives, and owners of privately-held businesses operating in a broad range of industries. These businesses are involved in transactions of varying size and complexity. While many of our clients regularly engage in deal activity as part of their corporate strategies, we also provide support in “one-off” situations.

We understand that each corporate transaction, regardless of size, is important to the client.  In light of our cost-effective billing model and firm structure, we are able to work on transactions often considered too small for many larger law firms. Much of our transactional work is for the benefit of long-term clients, where our understanding of corporate structure, capitalization, and operations helps to shorten the traditional legal due diligence cycle.

We also have extensive experience helping companies develop effective portfolios of intellectual property. While we do not engage in patent prosecution work, we help clients develop quality intellectual asset management plans and also help companies create competitive advantages with their intellectual property, whether through developing (or acquiring) the technology to protect their own products' market positions or monetizing the intellectual property they have created that is not germane to their strategic plans or product development road maps.
