Corporate

Our corporate practice continues to distinguish McGuireWoods among competitors. McGuireWoods’ corporate and M&A lawyers have been recognized by Chambers Global, while Chambers USA notes that “This group has a stellar reputation for its sophisticated corporate practice” and an “excellent network of offices to act for local and international clients on complex transactions.”

McGuireWoods’ corporate practice provides client-customized services in corporate finance and capital markets, corporate governance; cross-border transactions; entity formation; mergers and acquisitions; private equity and venture capital; securities compliance, and supply chain management.

Corporate Practice Overview

Our lawyers have extensive experience in acquisitions and divestitures, and in every type of financing, including venture capital, private placements, public and private issuance of equity and debt, initial public offerings and recapitalizations. Working closely with accountants and other professional advisors, we offer clients the benefits of our experience with business entities of varying sizes, market segments and stages of growth.

Corporate highlights — In just the last five years, McGuireWoods’ private equity lawyers have represented more than 100 private equity funds. Our supply chain management group is one of few in the country that do an equal volume of work in this niche. We offer a unique approach to entity formation — we focus on the analysis behind what type of entity to use, coupled with an equal focus on planning and creating a tax-efficient structure. Our corporate lawyers work with our tax lawyers to maximize the tax implications and minimize liability.

Our clients include closely held and publicly held corporations, private individuals, partnerships, limited liability companies and other for-profit and nonprofit organizations. They also come from every industry — aerospace and defense, agriculture, automotive and transportation, community banking, construction, consumer products, energy, financial services, infrastructure, insurance, healthcare, life sciences, manufacturing, media and telecommunications, mining, private equity and technology, among others.

Our industry depth and range mirrors our global reach. With more than 1,000 lawyers in 23 offices around the world, we cross borders, practices and industries collaborating with colleagues and managing resources in the United States, Western and Southern Europe, Russia and Eurasia, China, Africa, the Middle East, India, and Latin America.

McGuireWoods has been well-respected and growing for more than 175 years. This legacy is a testament to our lawyers’ experience across business and industry, as well as our consistent ability to deliver an excellent, integrated legal product — efficiently and at a fair price. Some of our clients have been with us for nearly 50 years which speaks to the level of service we provide and the mutual loyalty we engender.

Representation of Virginia Commonwealth University in its negotiations of a public-private partnership transaction with student housing developer American Campus Communities that will result in the construction of new on-campus housing. We negotiated the first-in-state off-balance-sheet transaction. Because of the novel partnership they negotiated, VCU’s bond capacity was not impacted. The project also included a synthetic TIF (tax increment financing), and the construction and operation of the new residence complex will be accomplished with safeguards to limit increases in students’ cost of living. The partnership will result in the construction of privately owned and operated on-campus housing for 1,524 freshman students in traditional and semi-suite style rooms.
