Experienced Legal Guidance For Corporate Governance
If you have questions about your rights and responsibilities as a corporate officer, director or shareholder, or if you need general advice about the legal implications of a particular corporate problem or opportunity, the Bergen County and Westchester County corporate law attorneys at Mitchell Pollack & Associates PLLC, in Mahwah and Tarrytown, are ready to assist your business. Our experience with corporate governance and the resolution of organizational problems can help you avoid liability while protecting the interests of your corporation.
Help With Routine Matters Or Avoiding Legal Trouble
Our corporate law attorneys provide reliable advice and documentation on such routine matters as updating shareholder agreements, amending bylaws, and making sure that your minutes reflect important board decisions. We can help you with resolutions to ratify corporate action that might otherwise lack formal validity. If a shareholder of a closely held corporation dies without a succession agreement, we can assist with the disposition of the shares.
Certain business or management situations can raise difficult ethical questions for corporate officers and directors, with serious legal consequences for the parties involved if the responsibilities inherent in some situations are overlooked or mishandled. Our attorneys can advise you about the applicable law relating to conflicts of interest, self-dealing, and the fiduciary duties of officers and directors. For continuing guidance on such questions, we can help your corporation develop and adopt formal ethics policies that can help you anticipate and manage potential legal hazards, or protect your interests should litigation become necessary.
Handling Mergers And Acquisitions
For corporations and partnerships considering a merger, acquisition of another company, or dissolution or breakup, we can assist with corporate law matters regarding:
- Term negotiation
- Due diligence
- Valuation of shares and capital assets
- Financing agreements
- Final documentation
Supporting Financial Institutions
Our long experience representing financial institutions of all kinds allows us to advise credit unions and banks about their corporate governance issues as well. We can assist with questions such as directors’ bonds, membership meetings and elections, and the stringent requirements for proper documentation of board action. No matter how your institution is chartered and regulated, our lawyers can help keep your financial institution free of problems with shareholders, members, directors and officers under both state and federal laws. We also handle your commercial litigation needs.
