Business Transactions

When you hire Davis Wright Tremaine to handle your business transactions, you get a strong team that is committed to helping you succeed. We find the right solutions for your company—ones that create value and keep you properly staffed and fully informed.

Davis Wright Tremaine’s business transactions practice is over 200 lawyers strong with nationally recognized experience advising companies with transactions across the United States and around the world.

Because of our low-leverage business model, you will always have direct access to experienced counsel. Whether your project needs our most experienced M&A lawyers for your large-scale, cross-border transaction, or a close-knit team from our emerging company practice to get your startup safely off the ground, we work directly with you to staff your project the way you want and with the support you need for success at all stages.

We try to begin each new project with an off-the-clock discussion to ensure we understand your business goals and priorities and to help us align our team to ensure your success. We will staff your work efficiently and will not charge you for multiple lawyers participating in the same meeting or call unless each lawyer is bringing specific value to the table.

We are enthusiastic about developing alternative fee arrangements that align your incentives with ours, so you are confident we define our success based upon our ability to support yours.

Our business transactions practice offers a cross-practice spectrum of services, including when appropriate bringing tax, employment, real estate and other industry-specific experience to the table to augment our transaction services and support your company’s needs.

Some of the areas we regularly counsel our clients on include:

  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Joint ventures and strategic alliances
  • Emerging growth companies
  • Corporate finance, including public and private equity, venture and angel financings
  • Securities reporting and regulatory compliance
  • Corporate governance counseling
  • Outside general counsel
  • Restructuring and reorganization of corporate and partnership enterprises
