We provide businesses the full spectrum of legal advice and counsel they will need through a company’s life cycle.  Our advisory and counseling services begins with decisions on entity formation and structure, through managing day-to-day legal affairs and drafting the documents that serve as the backbone for a company as it grows.  At the end of a successful enterprise, we assist firms with all aspects of exit strategies, mergers and acquisitions, and reorganizations for both buyers and sellers.

Our Business & Corporate Group is fully-integrated with all other practice areas within our firm.  We strive

for real-time integration across practice areas to create comprehensive and effective solutions.  Our attorneys are always mindful that the corporate legal advice offered is in concert with small business and government contract regulatory requirements.  At PilieroMazza, we take pride in helping clients maneuver through this daunting maze to find the best solutions for business situations requiring legal counsel.
