Corporate & Securities
Munsch Hardt's corporate and securities clients range from start-up companies to mature corporations that have been operating for decades. Our clients represent a wide array of industries including high technology, telecommunications, manufacturing, renewable energy, entertainment, banking, financial services, health care and retail services. Our attorneys provide assistance in corporate finance; leveraged capital and true leasing; tax planning, off-balance-sheet and tax-advantaged transactions; takeovers; contracts; franchising and distributorships; employment issues and general business matters. Our attorneys have a broad range of experience in both public and private securities matters including initial public offerings, tender offers, proxy fights, security offerings, '34 Act filings, syndications, securitizations, venture transactions, private equity transactions, commodity pool and hedge funds.
We have represented a number of companies from their formation as start-up corporations, partnerships, limited partnerships, limited liability companies or joint ventures, to maturity. We have provided advice on the creation and capitalization of such entities; assisted in the implementation of labor policies, incentive compensation plans, employment and consulting agreements, and sales representative agreements; and provided consultation with respect to the protection of intellectual property.
As these emerging companies have grown, we have represented them in connection with additional public and private financings with investment bankers, institutions, venture capitalists, commercial and other asset based lenders, private investors and traditional bank lenders. We have assisted in the expansion of these clients through international trade, mergers, acquisitions and franchising of their business concepts.
