Corporate & Commercial Law

Lugenbuhl takes great pride in providing a wide array of legal advice and services to its corporate and commercial clients, including local and national businesses, banks, and financial institutions.

The corporate and commercial law team at Lugenbuhl regularly provides direction and assistance to clients on a myriad of issues facing new and established businesses, including choosing whether a business should be formed as a corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or another type of entity. Upon selection of the appropriate entity type, Lugenbuhl provides guidance and assistance in preparing the necessary formation documentation, including the initial filings and the corporate governance documents such as bylaws for corporations and operating agreements for limited liability companies. Lugenbuhl also understands the complex challenges faced by companies’ officers and directors in ongoing corporate governance, and our team actively participates in meetings of boards of directors and shareholders for many of our corporate clients.

Our corporate and commercial law group also provides guidance on the negotiation and drafting of complex commercial contracts and assists in resolving disputes and complex commercial litigation. We also represent both lenders and borrowers in a broad range of commercial finance, lending, and leasing transactions including the negotiation, structuring, and documentation of acquisition loans, single-bank and syndicated term and revolving-credit facilities, working-capital loans, senior-debt instruments, letter-of-credit facilities, vessel financing, equipment leasing, construction loans and loans for many other forms of equipment, and marine and real estate financing transactions.

Finally, Lugenbuhl’s commercial team has substantial experience in corporate mergers, acquisitions, and other business combinations, including anti-takeover strategies and protections, leveraged buyouts, tender offers, and negotiated stock, asset, and merger transactions.
