For more than a century, Briggs and Morgan has served companies, partnerships, investors, investment bankers, lenders, entrepreneurs and others in the structuring, negotiation and consummation of a wide variety of private and public commercial transactions. Our practice is concentrated heavily on mergers and acquisitions, public offerings and private placements, and emerging companies of varying sizes.

In our corporate and business law representation, Briggs provides transactional and general counsel services to the boards and management of public and private companies including compliance with federal and state securities law and practical business advice. Our attorneys’ extensive experience adds value for start-up ventures, family or closely-held businesses, and new and established publicly-traded corporations.

Briggs assists clients at every stage, from formation through sale or dissolution. We carry start-up companies from inception to business planning to initial rounds of private financing; counsel seasoned companies through the creation of corporate policies and benefits plans, the completion of initial public offerings, the filing of periodic reports and the maintenance of shareholder relations; and guide established companies as they conduct additional financing, enter into joint ventures, and execute mergers and acquisitions. We recognize the value of smart legal advice that is anchored by an understanding of client objectives and the importance of industry knowledge necessary to achieve optimal results for clients of all sizes and circumstances.

In addition to business formation and financing, Briggs advises on a broad range of issues including management and shareholder planning and disputes, executive employment and compensation planning, contractual drafting, customer and supply chain negotiations, public company disclosure issues, acquisition strategies, corporate restructuring, tax planning, intellectual property licensing and protection, corporate investigations, and joint ventures.
