GENERAL CORPORATE GOVERNANCE & COUNSELING
MCLLP attorneys represent companies, often including portfolio companies of its investor clients, through the entire company life cycle — from formation and initial funding, to subsequent financings and through eventual exit. Equipped with broad transactional expertise, the Firm acts as outside general counsel to its rapidly growing clients and works closely with senior management on critical aspects of each client’s business. In that role, the Firm advises its clients in structuring and negotiating key commercial contracts, executive compensation matters, licensing agreements and strategic partnerships and joint ventures.
In addition, MCLLP provides guidance to management and governing boards on a full range of corporate governance matters. The Firm frequently advises on challenges facing senior leadership and boards with respect to their fiduciary duties and procedural best practices, including in connection with executive compensation matters, board composition and structure, conflicts of interest and succession planning. In doing so, the Firm stays apprised of the latest jurisprudence in the complex and dynamic corporate governance landscape.
With each client, MCLLP invests time at the outset of its engagement to understand the client’s business goals and challenges. This “business first” approach ensures that legal resources are allocated efficiently in achieving the client’s objectives.
