The firm’s extensive legal experience in corporate structuring and finance enables Bierce & Kenerson, P.C. to offer a tailored range of sophisticated legal services to help entrepreneurs and companies, both large and small, to build and grow stakeholder value through new ventures, joint ventures, strategic alliances and business transformations.
We are involved in various phases of compliance management and are often asked to provide our views on business goals, not just legal needs and obligations. In our transactional support, we regularly explore alternative business models, legal structures and scenarios to highlight opportunities and risks.
In addition to purely domestic transactions, we provide legal support for technology- and process-driven cross-border transactions. We collaborate with a network of foreign lawyers and professionals across the world. Many clients are foreign-owned. We also support American companies establishing foreign operations or trade.
Our corporate transactional support includes:
- New venture formation and housekeeping
- Limited liability companies (partnerships)
- Corporations (C and S corporations; B Corporations; flexible purpose corporations)
- Stakeholder Relationships
- Common vs. Preferred Stock
- Special allocations
- Operating Agreements
