No transaction is the same. As trusted corporate advisors, our lawyers bring solutions to clients operating in complex industries with constantly changing landscapes.
Seventy years after the firm was founded by transactional lawyers, Arent Fox maintains one of the largest and most comprehensive corporate practices in Washington, DC. The Corporate & Securities Practice is internationally recognized for providing legal service on transactions in a range of industries.
The breadth of the practice distinguishes the group from other DC-based transactional shops. As a reflection of that talent, the firm has been recognized by Chambers USA, Legal 500 and U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Law Firms.”
Our focus includes advising on capital markets transactions that range from highly complex mergers involving multinational companies to smaller deals for startups. The majority of the group’s transactional work involves deals in the $25 million to $500 million range. We also specialize in joint ventures, private and public offerings of equity and debt, and securities compliance and corporate governance.
Complex corporate work requires interdisciplinary solutions and should be approached with a practical perspective, managed with maximum efficiency, and staffed with a focused and lean group of attorneys. As a result of these guiding principles, the group is an industry leader in middle-market transactions across a range of industries and sectors, including technology, sports and entertainment, hospitality and lodging, manufacturing, consumer products, healthcare, automotive, telecommunications, media, and government contracts.
With decades of experience representing clients from a broad spectrum of industries, Arent Fox provides counsel to companies and their officers, boards of directors, special board committees and individual directors. The group regularly advises on corporate compliance and governance programs and offers a specialized focus for internal investigations.
