Most firms provide pre-packaged solutions to unique legal problems. Most corporate lawyers do not have the requisite business background to offer comprehensive legal advice. Argon Black lawyers participate in on-going management education to ensure that they understand the business implications of legal decisions. An understanding of your business ensures that our lawyers do not provide pre-packaged solutions. We provide truly tailored legal solutions for your business.

General Corporate

We provide timely delivery of personalized filing and registration services, due diligence searches, and compliance with routine corporate and commercial tasks. Our general corporate services include:

  • Contract drafting
  • Incorporations and registrations
  • Ongoing annual filings
  • Partnership agreements
  • Due Diligence searches
  • Antitrust and Competition

    Growth and acquisition require you to consider the legal implications of your market power. Antitrust laws are relevant to organizations seeking expansion, needing to prepare a defense against competitors and antitrust agencies, and wanting to keep their businesses focused on commercial issues rather than seemingly endless legal issues.

    Corporate Governance

    Our corporate governance team advises public and private companies, management, boards of directors and board committees on a full range of corporate governance matters and fiduciary duties. Argon Black's corporate governance team counsels on regulation, shareholder communication, best practices and more.

We work with clients who are involved in distressed company situations. Our expertise allows clients to minimize costs, enhance value and properly position themselves for the future.

    Corporate Structuring

    Most businesses can benefit from a corporate structure review. An appropriate corporate structure can ensure tax efficiency and limit legal liability. Corporate planning must be done in anticipation of future events, rather than as a reaction to current events. Our experienced legal team can help you determine the best corporate structure for your business based on your unique goals and needs. Considerations reviewed in making decisions with our clients include:
  • Tax structures
  • Small business corporation status
  • Cash distributions
  • Trust funds
  • Succession planning
  • Mergers & Acquisitions

    We provide exceptional advisory services to clients involved in mergers and acquisitions and other corporate transactions. Our expertise allows us to execute cross-border global deals seamlessly.
