Practice Areas


RKW’s business lawyers advise public and private companies, private equity funds, and financial institutions on sophisticated mergers and acquisitions, capital markets transactions, financings, and other transactional matters, with a strong focus on the middle market. We guide clients through major corporate transactions and crisis management, as well as in day-to-day operations and routine matters. We are trusted advisors to boards of directors, executive management teams, family offices, private equity sponsors, institutional and individual investors, and founder-owned businesses.

Our clients span a broad range of sectors, including healthcare, dental services and life sciences, hospitality and restaurant, specialty retail, consumer services, financial services, light manufacturing, business and industrial services, technology, and logistics. We act as allies to the companies we represent and their executives—anticipating their needs, responsively addressing their concerns, and being accessible at all times. Working collaboratively with firm specialists in related legal disciplines, we are able to effectively manage transaction risk. Our deal teams include partners who concentrate in finance, tax, employee benefits and executive compensation, intellectual property, information technology, labor and employment, healthcare, real estate, government contracts, litigation, and regulatory matters.

Our Business Law Practice Group is organized to meet clients’ needs in the most efficient manner possible; although we are often called upon to develop creative solutions to unique challenges, we find that many of our clients’ transactions and legal needs fall into recurring categories. We counsel clients on the full life cycle of a company, including:

  • Entity formation and structure
  • Financing and capitalization
  • Governing documents
  • Operation and management
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Business succession planning
  • Supply and distribution agreements
  • Secured transactions and debt recovery
  • Shareholder/Partner agreements
  • Executive compensation
  • Shareholder/Partner disputes

Like our clients, RKW operates in a fast-moving, cutting-edge business world. We know you need experienced, knowledgeable counsel to help satisfy rapidly changing demands, competitive forces, and regulatory challenges. Clients deserve an attorney/client relationship based on trust, proven responsiveness, efficiency, and transparent communication. RKW is committed to building such relationships.

We are in the business of solving problems.  Whether we are negotiating the purchase of a dental practice, updating your employee manual, assisting your business bid on a government contract or preparing estate planning documents to protect your family, we are focused on meeting your needs while managing your bottom line.
