Corporate Counsel

Counseling Clients Through Every Phase of the Business Cycle

The team of business lawyers at Penwell Law can serve as your outside corporate counsel and business advisor to resolve all your legal issues so that you can focus on what you do best—running your business.

As your corporate counsel and business advisors, the business lawyers at Penwell Law will assist you in day-to-day operations, business counseling and strategic planning. We advise business clients, both large and small, on a variety of business issues.

Corporate Governance

We provide solutions for all of your governance needs, including: oversight and documentation of meetings of boards of directors, managers, partners, shareholders and members; drafting, modification and compliance with bylaws, operating agreements, shareholders agreements and partnership agreements; and compliance with federal, state and local business laws and regulations.

Regulatory Compliance

We can act as the liaison with your regulators to ensure you obtain regulatory approval and your business objectives and operations comply with applicable regulations. We have experience counseling businesses in the following types of regulated industries:

Commercial Contracts

Whether you want to bring on a strategic partner or consultant, negotiate a joint venture agreement or need to enter into a contractual relationship for a key part of your day-to-day operations, we can review and negotiate on your behalf all types of commercial contracts, including:

Commercial Real Estate

We can assist individuals and business owners alike in negotiating, financing and closing commercial real estate deals, whether part of an M&A transaction or a standalone purchase and sale or lease transaction.  Our team of business attorneys can also help you obtain proper licenses and permits and resolve landlord and tenant issues.

Commercial Lending and Secured Transactions

When equity isn’t available to a business or it’s just not the right choice for raising capital, we counsel businesses and lenders in structuring and negotiating unsecured and secured financing and refinancing transactions, including revolving lines of credit, construction loans and other business loans secured by business assets, including inventory, equipment, real estate, intellectual property and accounts receivable.

Women Business Certifications

Thinking of applying for status as a women owned business? We can help you certify your business at the state and federal level as a women owned small business or as a women business enterprise through a third party certifier. From start to finish, we’ll guide you through the application, certification and implementation so you can get up and running as a certified women owned business.

Employment Agreements & Equity Incentive Plans

When it’s time to hire a key employee or bring on a new executive, we are here to help you negotiate and draft an employment agreement that fits your company.  If you want to incentivize and reward your board, executives or employees with equity in your company, we can assist you in preparing, approving and executing an equity incentive plan.  Specifically, we have experience preparing:  short and long-term incentive plans, stock appreciation rights plans and phantom stock plans to name a few.
