Mohen Cooper’s corporate and transaction attorneys regularly advise companies of all sizes, in a variety of industries on Long Island and in the New York metropolitan region, on nearly every aspect of doing business. Whether we are structuring, negotiating partnership and shareholder agreements and buyouts or advising a start-up, middle-market company, private equity investor or family-owned business), our goal is to provide superior legal representation, leveraging the insight we have gained over decades of work with the top businesses in the region.
Mohen Cooper LLC advises middle-market businesses as well as companies in all stages of development — from start-ups and early stage companies to well-established public entities — in a wide variety of industries. Our services include entity formation, capital raising, mergers and acquisitions, strategic alliances, shareholder agreements, contract review including licensing, franchise and distribution agreements and corporate governance.
Mohen Cooper assists businesses in raising capital through private placements and public offerings of debt and equity securities. Our attorneys have represented underwriters in these transactions, as well as issuers seeking to re-capitalize, either by restructuring the terms of outstanding securities or by issuing new securities in exchange transactions. Our publicly held clients rely on us for ongoing compliance with federal securities laws, including the preparation and filing of annual and quarterly reports and proxy statements. We also advise companies on matters such as stock exchange and NASDAQ requirements, insider trading issues and stock option plans.
Directors, officers and board members of public, private, nonprofit and municipal entities seek our counsel regarding best practices and on various corporate governance issues. Clients receive integrated, tailored advice on the specific challenges they face, whether these are related to board composition and structure, director and officer fiduciary duties, strategic transactions, day-to-day operations, codes of ethics, disclosure requirements, regulatory or internal investigations, forensic audits, insurance matters, litigation, suspected or actual misconduct or myriad other issues.
In helping clients meet their accountability and fiduciary responsibilities, we provide sound counsel relating to corporate governance issues, including; compliance, corporate governance audit and review, reporting, investigation, fraud detection and administrative proceedings. We assist with developing the composition and procedures of boards of directors and committees; identifying and implementing “best practices”; the development of board committee charters and codes of conduct; and executive compensation. We also work closely with auditing firms with respect to all aspects of corporate governance issues and compliance regulations. Further, our corporate governance practice draws upon the multiple interdisciplinary strengths within the areas of specialization of our firm, including corporate and securities, litigation, white-collar criminal defense and employment law.
