Business & Transactions

With business and transactions attorneys in 3 of our offices, the Business & Transactions Section is led by Harold Aucoin (metro-New Orleans). 

On a nationwide basis, we advise, counsel, and represent start-up to large companies and individuals in connection with virtually every aspect of business, including running, selling and purchasing a business, and dealing with the various legal issues confronted by those who own and manage businesses. 

Multi-Discipline Experience, Practical Focus, and Integrated Services 

The focus of our Business & Transactions practice area is providing preventive, proactive, problem-solving advice that is practical, includes a broad range of business considerations, and meets a broad range of business needs. 

We work with businesses for M&A work, both on the buyer and seller side of transactions. 

We are guided by practical business experience gained through serving in several industries in the capacities of chief operating officer, chief financial officer, and in-house general counsel. This cross-career experience provides us more than a theoretical perspective and allows us to provide the practical legal advice a business needs to achieve its overall goals. 

Our objective is to provide clients with an assessment of legal risks, options for the elimination or mitigation of those risks, and integrated guidance so that they can make informed decisions to accomplish their business objectives. 

Well-drafted agreements are crucial to businesses of all sizes and require a thoughtful balance of legal exposure, business pragmatism, and client protection. Whether drafting a new agreement, interpreting, or reviewing an existing one, or helping to resolve a difficult contractual challenge, we have the experience, knowledge, and perspective to manage the process to a good legal and business result. 

For some of our clients, significant commercial transactions are a part of their business; for others, it is a unique event. Commercial transactions require a perspective of not only potential legal issues but also business strategy, operations, accounting, financing, and tax issues. From initial transaction design through transition implementation, we have experience in managing the entire process to a timely and practical conclusion. 

What We Provide: 

Due diligence for large and small transactions, especially relating to licensing, compliance, and employment areas.
