Attorneys at Law

Corporate & Business Law

Messerli and Kramer’s corporate and business law services practice group assists privately and publicly held companies in all phases of their growth and development. Our attorneys help entrepreneurs get their footings as business entities, establish shareholder and corporate governance agreements, assist with financing as required, and in latter stages help with mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures or simple business succession. Along the way there are operational issues to address as well, such as SEC reporting, regulatory compliance, corporate contracts, tax planning, product distribution and licensing, and franchising.

What separates Messerli and Kramer from other law firms handling corporate and business services is our attorneys’ strong understanding of what businesses need, how they function, and how other resources and connections can make things happen.

Above all, the attorneys of Messerli and Kramer’s corporate and business services group are mindful of the need to be responsive to their clients’ time and budget needs. They make themselves available and provide legal services that are practical and tailored to a client’s situation. With their ultimate focus on providing their clients long-term risk protection and stability, Messerli and Kramer’s corporate and business services attorneys provide companies a foundation for success.
