Corporate Law

Coppersmith Brockelman’s corporate and transactional law practice is well-known in the business community. Providing a full spectrum of counsel, we continuously strive to be creative in our approach and responsive to clients’ needs. Refusing to “over-lawyer” any deal, our goal is to provide well-informed advice that fits the client, the transaction, and the budget.

The depth and breadth of our corporate and transactional practice is dedicated to helping corporate clients establish and operate their businesses. From advising clients to helping complete transactions, our work is far-reaching. We have worked steadfastly:

  • Negotiating and documenting sales and purchases of businesses, including related financing arrangements.
  • Advising clients on new entity formation, governance and control, and operations.
  • Establishing joint venture arrangements between for-profit entities as well as ventures involving exempt organizations.
  • Setting up creative business models for private and public contracting.
  • Advising clients on corporate governance matters, including conflict of interest, disclosure, and treatment of minority shareholders or members.
  • Representing governmental organizations, particularly hospital and special health care districts, in their organization and operation under state law, including public records and Open Meeting Law issues.
  • Reviewing corporate organization and contracts for both new and existing businesses.
  • Serving as Arizona counsel for national purchases, sales, financings, and spinoffs for business organizations.

From daily local matters to transactions with global reverberations, Coppersmith Brockelman stands ready to serve our clients’ needs.
