Overview

Our Clients

Katten's Corporate attorneys provide sophisticated transactional representation and counseling across a wide range of industries, including financial services, health care, pharmaceuticals, education, manufacturing, parking and transportation, publishing and media, technology and sports. Our clients include public and private companies, private equity sponsors and their portfolio companies, boards of directors, special committees, investment funds, entrepreneurs, and nonprofit organizations.

Our Services

Katten attorneys have the knowledge, experience and business perspective needed to identify and resolve the complex legal issues facing today’s business enterprises. Companies and their boards of directors seek our assistance with day-to-day operational matters, corporate governance, regulatory compliance, employee benefits and executive compensation.

Our Corporate team works closely with attorneys from other disciplines, including tax, employee benefits, antitrust and intellectual property, to provide comprehensive representation in all of their business transactions. The breadth and depth of our transactional experience help us understand our clients' business needs and create value at every stage of the deal, from the initial bidding or negotiation process through closing.

We also offer comprehensive outside general counsel services with a strong M&A focus to clients in all stages of the corporate life cycle looking for personalized, practical, value-added advice.

For complex, cross-border transactions, our attorneys regularly team with foreign counsel to provide seamless client service on deals throughout Europe as well as in Japan, China, Mexico, Canada and Brazil. In addition, we have extensive experience in foreign antitrust investigations, transactions and business operations, and have established strong relationships with foreign competition lawyers who can be retained quickly when the need for overseas counsel arises.
