We Think Business

The only constant in business is change. With instant communication and a truly global economy, your corporate lawyers need to understand your business to help you effectively navigate this complex environment.

At Godfrey & Kahn, ‘we think business’ is more than just a tagline. We invest in each client relationship to ensure that we know your team and develop a deep understanding of your unique operations, challenges and objectives. We then apply that knowledge to develop creative legal solutions to promote your success and minimize risk.

Navigating the Legal Landscape for Success

From startup businesses in growth mode to mature multinationals, our corporate attorneys regularly assist clients in:

  • Mergers, acquisitions and divestitures
  • Private equity
  • Startups and venture capital
  • Debt and equity financing
  • Securities
  • Corporate governance
  • Commercial contracts
  • General counsel and strategic advisory

The ability to bring the experience and perspective of more than 50 transactional attorneys positions us to handle a large number of deals each year across multiple industries. Every day our attorneys act as an extension of our clients’ businesses by offering strategic insights and identifying, managing, and mitigating risk.

Whether we’re collaborating with your in-house counsel or serving as your outside general counsel, our attorneys will provide practical legal solutions through our experienced and multidisciplinary team.

Corporate Transparency Act

The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) was enacted as an expansion of federal anti-money laundering laws and became effective on January 1, 2024. The CTA introduces reporting requirements for new and existing companies formed or registered in the U.S., including corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies.

What does this mean for your company?
We've put together a comprehensive resource center including who qualifies for an exemption, how to file, and additional resources in navigating this new landscape.
