Business Law

Manning Fulton attorneys advise and assist a wide-range of businesses with their legal needs, including both publicly-traded and privately-held, domestic and international, portfolio companies and family businesses, and from small businesses to large multi-national corporations.

We are especially aware of our clients' desire to control legal costs, and we work with our clients to find creative ways to minimize the cost of our services. In every transaction, our goal is to work with our client’s investment bankers, accountants, and other advisors to help our client choose the financing plan that is most effective and efficient to meet their goals, and to provide our services in the most cost-effective manner for the client.

Our attorneys have experience in a wide range of industries, including agribusiness, automotive, biotechnology, banking, computers, construction, distribution, e-commerce, financial services, government, health care, insurance, life sciences, manufacturing, real estate, retail, software, technology, and telecommunications, among others.

We assist a wide range of companies with their business legal needs, from startup technology-based companies to more established companies in traditional industries. We also represent investors and private equity funds that own and advise portfolio companies. Our attorneys help clients structure, negotiate and document corporate transactions and advise on governance, regulatory and operational issues to service the corporate legal needs from initial investment through exit. We work with clients to understand their entire business strategy and to tailor our legal services and advice to that strategy.
