M&R counsels clients on the responsibilities and rights of corporations, management, boards of directors and board special committees under federal and state laws. Clients call upon our expertise to guide them on issues relating to board committee composition, practices and duties, determination of “independence,” interested party transactions, litigation matters and shareholder rights. We are well versed in “super majority” and other voting arrangements, stock transfer restrictions, anti-dilution protection, rights of first refusal, put and call rights, and "tag-along" and "drag-along" provisions.
We help form and launch partnership and limited liability companies and prepare governance documents, stipulating procedures for admission and removal of partners and members. We also advise on keeping our clients compliant with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), and the Department of Labor (DOL).
