Our lawyers know that advising your business without understanding your business is like taking a trip without a destination.

Haynes and Boone was founded by business lawyers who wanted to help companies succeed and grow. Nearly half a century later, the lawyers in our national Corporate practices understand more than ever how to get business done in an increasingly interconnected global, complex and regulated marketplace.

Our teams are widely recognized for their practical, skilled approach by publications such as Chambers USA, Corporate Board Member and M&A Advisor.  Clients note that when dealing with our lawyers, “[Y]ou are dealing with someone who is firstly a business adviser and then a legal adviser – they bring strong business acumen to the table.” (Chambers USA 2015).

Our corporate lawyers represent numerous public companies, ranging from domestic small-caps to multinational large-cap corporations, as well as their senior executives and boards of directors. We also represent a wide variety of other business clients, ranging from entrepreneurs, family offices and startups, to private equity funds, venture capital firms and closely held corporations.

Our lawyers, many of whom have worked as in-house counsel or senior government lawyers, routinely play key roles in helping our clients’ achieve their business strategies:

  • We help start companies and raise capital.
  • We assist with initiating, structuring, financing and closing deals to buy and sell companies.
  • We advise on reporting, disclosure and other compliance requirements.
  • We counsel and train executives and boards of directors on corporate governance.

In addition to handling myriad other matters for businesses, the Corporate practices can tap into the collective experience and knowledge of lawyers from across Haynes and Boone in matters of tax planning, employee benefits and executive compensation, antitrust, intellectual property, real estate, bankruptcy, technology, and labor and employment, among others.
