Corporate

According to a leading legal ranking organization, Sutherland’s Corporate practice is “very keyed in to current issues.” – Chambers USA 2012

Sutherland’s corporate attorneys serve the breadth of public and private companies in virtually every industry, with nearly every type of transaction.

Sutherland helps clients understand the full range of business law, enabling them to grow and thrive. We constantly monitor the economic, regulatory and legislative environment so we can guide clients to new opportunities while minimizing risk. We represent both public and private companies in virtually every type of transaction, and our client list runs the gamut of industries.

Sutherland works with clients to raise billions in public and private capital. Our attorneys address practically every corporate legal need, including general corporate advice, finance, mergers, acquisitions and other transformative transactions, corporate governance and compliance in an evolving regulatory environment. We work seamlessly with attorneys in the firm’s other practice areas to meet our clients’ business objectives, allowing clients to benefit from attorneys knowledgeable in each industry's opportunities, hurdles and pitfalls. We oversee complex transactions and matters, and we bring a collaborative, integrated approach to solving problems.

We serve clients of all sizes, from entrepreneurs to Fortune 200 companies. Our clients include insurers, financial institutions, investment companies, mutual funds, underwriters, broker-dealers as well as in industries as diverse as energy, e-commerce, communications, retail, franchising, manufacturing, hospitality, health care, mining and aerospace and defense.

Why Sutherland

Strength of a full-service firm. When our clients need a comprehensive approach, our corporate attorneys draw on the extensive knowledge of their colleagues in other practice areas, including tax, intellectual property, real estate, antitrust, executive compensation, employee benefits and litigation. We cultivate a collaborative approach in order to meet all of our clients’ needs in an efficient, proactive and thorough way.

Sophisticated understanding. Our Derivatives and Structured Products practice expanded in response to clients’ demands for sophisticated and market-sensitive advice. We are at the forefront of the derivatives markets, particularly on issues related to the changing regulations under the Dodd-Frank Act.

Signature experience. While we work with clients in many different industries, our depth is especially strong with energy, financial services, banking and financial institutions.

Range. We regularly represent clients in mergers & acquisitions, international trade, derivatives and structured products, private capital, securities and corporate governance, outsourcing and e-commerce. We advise businesses on everything from transformative transactions to finance to everyday corporate governance matters and representation of boards of directors.

Global reach. We represent a diverse group of international corporations on a range of issues, including investments by U.S. companies abroad and by foreign companies in the United States, as well as in resolving trade disputes. We advise clients on how U.S. laws, including export control law, antitrust law and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, provide extensive regulation of international business.

Tailored approach. We work with clients to meet all of their business needs, whatever those needs may be. We can work as an extension of legal departments, as retained corporate counsel, co-counsel or in whatever configuration the situation requires.

In-house and regulatory experience. Many of our lawyers have served within in-house legal departments and regulatory agencies, including at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, providing valuable perspective to our clients.
