As strategic advisors, our corporate lawyers excel in counseling a wide range of business clients as they navigate through their life cycle.

Our broad experience and versatility allow us to represent private and public corporations, from family-owned or closely-held enterprises to large, multinational corporations, as well as entrepreneurial individuals, financial institutions, private equity firms, securities dealers and advisers, and investment funds. We work closely with our colleagues in other practice areas across the firm to ensure our clients’ legal needs receive prompt, seamless attention. We aim to be a valuable extension of our clients’ businesses by understanding their goals and offering comprehensive legal services to help them succeed and grow their wealth through various legal structures, wherever they do or want to do business.

At Torkin Manes, our legal capabilities extend beyond borders, as we possess significant experience in both inbound and outbound cross-border work.
