At Cipriani & Werner, our corporate practice is comprised of attorneys with decades of experience meeting the needs of business and corporate clients encompassing the full life cycle, from formation to dissolution.  This includes advising clients regarding: choice of business entity and entity formation, corporate governance, corporate finance, federal and state securities regulations, and capitalization including stock option and deferred compensation plans.

Our attorneys have served as both in-house and outside General Counsel positions for corporate and business clients, and have worked closely with counsel in a broad range of industries, including insurance, healthcare, banking, real estate, manufacturing, professional sports, transportation and professional services.

The experiences of our attorneys, both in private business ventures of their own and in their legal practice, provide clients with a unique blend of experiences and sophistication.  Our attorneys better understand and represent the needs of our clients in transactions, M&A considerations, succession planning matters and other growth considerations, since they have experienced these issues first-hand in their own businesses.
