Organization & Governance



Choosing a business structure is a process that businesses can’t afford to undertake lightly. The decision – whether the company is a startup, joint venture, corporate entity or other type of pursuit – impacts the business legally and financially from day one.

Turner Padget’s Organization & Governance Practice intimately understands our client’s business climate, unique market opportunities and bottom line goals to help them select the appropriate business entity, as well as organizational and management structure to drive results. Specifically, we support our clients in the formation of partnerships, S corporations, C corporations and limited liability companies throughtout the Southeast.

Priding ourselves in the knowledge and transactional experience that our attorneys bring to the table, we also have extensive background in mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations, equity and debt financing, private securities offerings and contractual negotiations of all types.

Our capabilities in this area stem, in part, from staying at the forefront of legislative and industry developments. In addition, deep industry knowledge enables us to craft sophisticated solutions to meet our clients’ objectives in the entity planning stages of their business – providing as much a business solution as a legal resolution. Helping clients make smart decisions from inception successfully impacts the business for years to come.
