Transactional and Corporate Law

Business Advice That Stands Up Over Time and in Court

Successful commercial and corporate transactions not only resolve each party's need to close the deal today or next week. They also prove their value over time, not only as they define the commitments and performance of each party, but as they withstand legal challenges when things go wrong for one side or the other.

At Callahan & Blaine, our practical advice and farsighted counsel can make the difference between documentation that protects your company for decades and a legal time bomb that could blow up at any time. Find out how our experience and insights as business advisers can help your company take advantage of opportunities, protect profits, define roles, manage risk and avoid liability.
