Business Transactions

Stone | Dean’s Business Transactions Team offers a full range of business and commercial legal services to all types of business entities ranging in size from small owner-managed enterprises to emerging growth companies and large publicly traded companies. Whether we are advising our clients regarding day-to-day issues impacting operations, corporate maintenance, or competition, or representing a new or long-term client in a transaction, we view ourselves as our clients’ strategic partner.

We routinely act as outside general counsel for our business clients. The most significant aspect of our transactional practice for most clients involves the day-to-day advice and documentation involving arrangements with employees, vendors, customers, manufacturers, distributors, investors, partners, creditors, joint ventures, licensors, licensees and shareholders.

We expertly manage and provide cost-conscious representation, while at the same time, provide the depth of experience required to effectively represent our clients with specialized issues typically involved in all aspects of business and commercial transactions.
