Business and Tax

Our clients are in every kind of business. Their legal departments range from large to small to even non-existent. Their legal needs are many and varied — delivering of third party legal opinions to lenders and rating agencies in complex public and private financing transactions, executing mergers, developing real estate, drafting partnership, limited liability company, corporate, shareholder, and trust agreements, complying with employment regulations, settling disputes, and generally dealing with the myriad of day-to-day issues that go into running a business.

Our attorneys help middle-market businesses in the areas they need it most.  We act as their primary, or sole, outside counsel, or collaborate strategically with lead counsel in other jurisdictions throughout the world to address Delaware law issues. In labor and employment matters, we approach possible lawsuits with a keen sensitivity to the accompanying economic, enterprise, and human issues. In transactions, we counsel them on the strategic, legal, and tax implications of various acquisition scenarios. For all types of Delaware entities — conventional and alternative — we render highly regarded opinions on issues of Delaware law including formation and governance, and we help fiduciaries meet their responsibilities. When real estate is involved, our long experience with developers, lenders, and regulators helps remove obstacles and move deals ahead. In addition to rendering tax and transaction structuring advice in an almost unlimited variety of complex business transactions, our attorneys provide income, estate, trust, and gift tax advice to business owners, business executives, and their families.

Young Conaway offers business owners a practical approach that avoids or prevents litigation whenever possible, and actively seeks out the solutions that lead to the best strategic outcomes.
